Critique Format

  1. Summary
  2. Fundamental ideas
  3. Contributions
  4. Limitations
  5. Questions for clarification or discussion
Note: in addition to papers that present novel researh, we will also be doing some background reading (surveys, book chapters, etc.) in ecology and stats. Discussion of "contributions" and "limitations" may seem less relevant, e.g., for a book chapter, but you should still try to comment on the importance and relevance of the ideas being presented in relation to a broader body of work.
