Effect of Caffeine on Plant Growth - Research Help!

Postby hayleymikaela » Thu Oct 25, 2012 5:32 pm

Hi, I'm new to Science Buddies but my teacher recommended it.
I'm doing a science project on how plant growth is effected by Caffeine and I need at least 2 good websites to use to conduct my research that end in .edu or .gov and asap! They need to be reliable and have something to do with my project.
Much thanks ahead of time! (:

Hello and thanks for your question!
If you go to the "background" tab of the project and scroll down, you'll see a heading that says "Bibliography"
Under that there are a few good sources for you!
Let me know if that helps!

Hi hayleymikaela,

This is a great project! I was not able to find related websites ending in .edu or .gov, but I did find a couple scientific articles about the effects of caffeine on plant growth, which should impress your teacher.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/article ... 8-0003.pdf

Although this website does not end in .edu or .gov, it does have some great information that might help you in your search: http://www.ehow.com/about_5474420_effec ... lants.html

Have you tried doing a search on Google Scholar (http://scholar.google.com)? It usually links to scientific articles, but you can sometimes get links to university (.edu) websites from there.

I hope this helps. Please post again if you have more questions.
