Weird question but I think you guys can help...

In my college composition II class we have to write an argumentative essay and I decided that I wanted the topic of my essay to be on the importance of coral reefs on marine and human life and preservation.
I need 8-10 sources, 5 of which need to be scholarly.
I'm sure some of you are very knowledgeable on the subject,
can you provide me with any links or book titles to point me in the right direction?
Do you think this is a good topic to write the paper on? If this doesn't work I'm going to write it on puppy mills.

Btw if it's a great article but it isn't scholarly, go ahead and post the link anyway because I will still be able to use it.
Thanks to anyone that can help (:

Or what about this, destructive fishing techniques and their effects on marine life?
Like cyanide and explosives? I'm not sure there is enough information available to write a paper with hard evidence, I'll probably just stick with the original topic but just throwing it out there

I had to write a 15 page paper (APA format) on Bramante and a single sculpture he did. Trust me when I say you can always find enough info. Good luck.

Lol thanks XD I have no idea how long this paper needs to be, she just told us today to start deciding on a topic and locating sources. I'm guessing if I need 8-10 its going to be lengthy though

With destructive fishing you can say how america has all the laws on how to fish tuna where other countries just use fishing nets that destroy other organisms in the process and have no regulations

A little off from the reefs but you could do invasive aquatic species especially in Florida which is causing havoc on fishing.

This was posted earlier in another thread. I think, like you said, this is a strong topic to look at.

Google scholar may be a good place to start. I would guess that your college or university also has database access which is probably superior to google scholar.

Not sure I fully understand your original topic idea. What do you want to focus on? You topic seems a bit nebulous.

Teacher recommended ohiolink.

The original topic, I was thinking along the lines of how extreme harvesting of coral is affecting marine life. Also human life, like for example, the erosion on barrier reefs that line coastal areas.

Wow that's really sad
Why aren't more saltwater fish captive bred? People just don't know how to breed them?
