24 3 Drafting Papers Accordingly, an Introduction for case study 2 should begin by expanding the rationale, using relevant details, by stating that a variant of the previously minor pest Hylobius fabricated has begun to cause severe damage to some populations of fictitious pine in Sucrosia, and note that this is a serious concern because the pine is a threatened species, citing essential references, to establish the significance of the study. It should then outline the reasons for focusing on the factors considered, stating first that levels of damage by pests are known to be influenced by environmental factors, providing illustrative examples from the literature.

This is also consistent with previous reports (followed by illustrative references regarding similar correlations affecting pine–pest interactions). Any other correlations detected between genetic variables and damage then need to be mentioned (followed by further illustrative references describing similar or contrasting correlations). Again, possible explanations for the observed correlations should also be described (with support, if available, from relevant references). The Discussion of these, and all studies, should end with summarizing or concluding remarks, which may or may not be presented in a separate section entitled Conclusion or Conclusions.

It is also often sensible to remind readers of the general importance of the subject in a long paper (partly because they may have forgotten by the time they start reading the Discussion, and partly because it often helps the ‘narrative flow’) by very briefly recapitulating part of the background (rationale) of the study. For instance, a draft of the Discussion for case study 2 might start as follows: The previously minor pest Hylobius fabricated has begun to attack, heavily, some (but not all) populations of fictitious pines, a threatened species (essential reference), in Sucrosia.
