Extract:

Improving Wikipedia: educational opportunity and professional responsibility. In a graduate seminar on plant–animal interactions participants assessed the quality and content of ecology content on Wikipedia. They found Wikipedia generally limited in depth and breadth and with too few citations. Then they proceeded to edit Wikipedia in their domain and found the process "straightforward and efficient, particularly once we learned the protocol for proposing and implementing changes".
