the source of information
When writing an essay or doing a school project, you will have to gather
information from a wide variety of sources. The various sources of information
are acknowledged in a section called "bibliography", "references" or "literature
cited". The information listed about each source should be of sufficient
detail for someone else to find the exact source. Hence the citation should
include the names of authors or editors, the year of publication, the
title of the book, the publisher and city, and the number of pages.
Thus the mangrove guidebooks may be cited as:
- Ng, P.K.L. & N. Sivasothi (eds.), 1999. A guide to the mangroves
of Singapore I: The Ecosystem and plant diversity. Singapore Science
- Ng, P.K.L. & N.
Sivasothi (eds.), 1999. A guide to the mangroves of Singapore II:
Animal diversity. Singapore Science Centre, 168p.
These are the useful unique numbers that bookstores use when searching
or ordering books. You can try using these numbers when searching webpages
of online bookstores. They can prove more accurate results than using
- A guide to the mangroves of Singapore I. ISBN 9810413076
