The material that needs to be incorporated in figures and tables should be carefully considered, because if too much information is included, it will be difficult to absorb it from them, but if there is too little, the referees and/or the journal’s editor are likely to be annoyed (and hence more likely to reject the paper). Essentially, if the information you wish to present can be summarized in a few sentences, it should generally be included in the text in the appropriate section. However, if a long, complex paragraph, or more than one paragraph, would be required to describe the information in words, it should generally be presented in a table or figure.

The results show that both types of factors (most importantly, coverage of the invasive weed Fallopia fictional, stand density and alleles res2 and res4), and interactions between them, strongly affect levels of damage. The implications. . The findings indicate that efforts to conserve this threatened pine species should include removing Fallopia fictional and thinning to foster environmental conditions that do not promote attacks, and re-planting where necessary with saplings carrying alleles res2 and res4.

For instance, if dioxins in a Chinese ecosystem have been examined, parts of papers relating to studies of dioxins in the US, such as descriptions of GC-MS spectra, could be adapted with appropriate modifications. Therefore, we recommend keeping a list of papers that clearly describe techniques that you use, and results obtained with them, as templates to help when writing sections of papers describing standard methods and results obtained when using them. In addition, figures and tables should be judicially used to present results.
