WHY MBREF?

Students often need to get into the literature of a particular specialty, but face the problem of finding the "good stuff." This happens when first learning about a particular area (e.g., ecology of mangroves), or when the need arises to write a term paper. Computer searches may help, but often the very best papers and comprehensive reviews fail to show up in such a search or are hidden among many others of dubious value. MBREF will give you the chance to see the choice of references of experts. Each subject includes summary papers, classic papers, and recent contributions. Some lists have been assembled specifically for MBREF while others are the result of a variety of progam projects that have led to web-accessible bibliographies. In a few cases, controversies have been selected and papers reflecting several points of view have been selected. Keep visiting this page, as you will see more and more as the months progress.
