Term papers for Landscape and Turfgrass Management Summary The term paper due April 8, 1999 will  be your attempt to teach others about  a problem or to recommend a practice  for the landscape.  Why? Goals for the term paper are for you  to:  (1) develop in-depth knowledge of  a   special   practice   or   problem   in  landscape and turfgrass management;  (2) be able to present ideas to others;  and   (3)   become   more   familiar   with  information   resources   available   to  landscape and turf professionals.   The term paper is important.  Writing  helps you develop clear thinking.   A  landscape   practice   or   problem  becomes clearer to you the writer after  you have explained it to others.  You  must   be   able   to  quickly   collect   and  organize ideas and information to deal  with   supervisors,   subordinates,   and  customers.   While there will be no formal stand- up   presentation,   students   will   share  their   term   papers   electronically   by  means of the instructors placing them  in class folders for all to view.   For  those who wish more public exposure,  one of us (Phil Busey) will work with  students individually to place the term  paper on the web.     Term   papers   are   indicators   of   a  student's ability and interests, which  can inform prospective employers and  scholarship committees of a student's  appropriateness for a job or an award.  Requirements Term   papers   may   be   submitted   in  electronic format, either on a 3.5 inch  PC-compatible diskette or as an e-mail  attachment.   Acceptable text formats  are Word, Wordperfect 5 or 6, RTF,  and ASCII.   The body of each paper  (see below) must be at least 1500 but  not more than 2000 words.  Students  who are unable to submit in electronic  format may submit a typewritten term  paper.     References   must   include   at  least three web URL citations, at least  three   refereed   scientific   journal  papers, and at least three articles from  popular landscape trade magazines.   Term papers must have the following
