Do not see this link? Try the following...
To search a summary of each article, which criteria would you use?
In the Abstract: box, search:
How many results did you get?
Refine your search by adding the term prescribed burns. In the Abstract: box, add the following to your search:
AND prescribed burns
Need some help?
How many results did you get this time?
Only that many results? Hmmm... perhaps we should try an additional term with prescribed burns.
Which of the following appear to be a alternative term for burns?
Let's use the term fire as an additional term with prescribed burns.
In the Abstract: box, modify your search so it looks like this:
prairie restoration AND (prescribed burns OR fire)
Using the word OR will find all records that contain either one of the specified search terms. Typically this will broaden the search results.
Our final searching tip is to:
Use limits to focus search results.
In BioOne you can limit by content access and date range.
Use the "Refine By" section to include resources published in 2009 or later.
Under the heading Refine By select "Only content I can access"
Find the article Fire as a Restoration Tool in Pacific Northwest Prairies and Oak Woodlands: Challenges, Successes, and Future Directions and open the Abstract & References page.
