For instance, we have frequently encountered examples such as the following: • papers about monitoring compounds, for example, polycylic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), that explain in detail the methods used, but fail to describe the sampling sites, or that PAHs can cause serious health problems (and thus why the study is important) • papers about water use efficiency by crop plants that do not mention the location of the study (although water use efficiency is irrelevant in a swamp, but critical in a desert) • papers about treatments that could make small percentage savings in costs of industrial processes that do not mention that the total savings could amount to millions of dollars.

The paper was subsequently revised, before submission, by stressing when this was first mentioned that conditions were unrealistic in the previous laboratory experiments (concentrations of substrates were much higher than would ever be found in the field) and simply mentioning at other points that this was the first report of its occurrence in any ecosystem.

And for case study 2: The results indicate that both environmental and genetic factors influence levels of damage caused by Hylobius fabricated to fictitious pines in Sucrosia. Levels of damage appear to be heavy at sites where fictional knotweed is abundant and the stands are dense. In addition, the alleles res2 and res4 appear to confer substantial resistance to the pest, in accordance with observations by several authors that homologous genes confer resistance to various 34 3 Drafting Papers insect pests in related pine species.
