Trogan,

You can find the websites for Science Magazine and Nature at the following URLS:

http://www.sciencemag.com
http://www.nature.com

I would caution you that Science and Nature can get pretty technical in their writing style.

Science and Nature are both journals. I think that you are lookin for articles in about pH and tadpole development in these journals.

To find articles dealing with your topic, use the search engines located on the webpages. In order to view the full content of an article, you will most likely have to pay a fee.

If you have any trouble, please let me know!

Good Luck!!!
All the best,
Terik

A great new tool that searches several (although I do not know how extensive they are) databases in Google's Googlescholar. The unfortunate disadvantage is that this will only link you to abstracts; many of the websites require you to pay a per article/subscription fee. One of the largest databases they encompass is pubmed; I have used it with success to find articles serving my needs. Try searching on Pubmed, and seeing if any of the abstracts your search (try to use focused, concise queries) brings up are good. Bookmark them, and then ask if anyone in your school's science or research department has a Pubmed account (more likely than you think). I'd give you the one of my research director, but I don't think she'd like that! Good luck!
