Summary of Conservation

From the discussion, I feel that I should focus more on the advantages and disadvantages. (It seems that these points are the most thought provoking and interesting.) Since I have already began my presentation, I definitely think I need to expand this part in the slides! Maybe I can leave the dots as an introduction to what will follow and then elaborate on those points in individual slides and incorporate interesting images to accompany my ideas.

Additionally, I feel that I need to work on a smoother transition into my thesis, instead of just sticking it at the beginning of the presentation.
