For instance, the hypothetical studies addressed thus far in this guide could be concluded as follows, for case study 1: The findings show that urine of the wolf Canis lupus subspecies imaginary is a powerful deterrent of grazing by deer (Cervus imaginary). Small applications of the urine along the perimeters of crop plots at 2 m spacing were sufficient to completely exclude deer in the trial, while they rapidly consumed the crops in the control plots. Full-scale trials are required to confirm these findings, but the results are highly promising.

This is also consistent with previous reports (followed by illustrative references regarding similar correlations affecting pine–pest interactions). Again, the consistency (or otherwise) of any other correlations detected between damage and any other measured genetic variables with previous results then need to be mentioned (together with further illustrative references). Similarly, possible explanations for the observed correlations should be described (with support, if available, from relevant references).

It is usually only desirable to mention the possibility that findings might be generally applicable if either you have examined a sufficient range of materials to support a novel assertion or you are planning to test the generality of the findings. If you have such plans, you could state, perhaps, the following: This study focused on populations of mosquitoes in southern Sucrosia. Thus, clearly populations of more species across a greater geographical range need to be examined to assess the generality of the findings.
