\section{Introduction}
\label{intro}
(Indicate the scientific question(s) to be answered.
Introduce your approach to the analysis.
Indicate the structure of your paper. Make your
summary clear and factual.)\\
The organization of the paper is as follows: In section~\ref{data} we
describe our data. In section~\ref{methods} the methodology and
assumptions of our analysis are given in detail.
Section~\ref{results} summarizes our findings, and a discussion
is found in section~\ref{discussion}.
\section{The Data}
\label{data}
(Describe your data. Give specifics. Indicate special features.
etc. If the data is easy to describe, perhaps lump this section
in with the intro (thats my personal preference unless this involves a
long description).) \\
\section{Methods}
\label{methods}
(Your audience should be someone who got a Master's degree in
statistics a few years back. Don't waste time with trivial
details, but indicate the analytics tools you use with
enough detail that your analysis could be reproduced by the reader.
Be sure to discuss relevant assumptions) \\
\subsection{Generalized Linear Models for Extinction Risk}
\label{glm}
In this section we describe the Generalized Linear Model
used to analyze the data.
% ``eqnarray'' is for a whole series of equations that you
% want to line up in a certain way -- that is what the & signs
% do. For just a single line equations, use \begin{equation}.
\begin{eqnarray}
\label{eq1}
E_{ijk} &\sim& {\rm Bin}(n_{ijk}, p_{ijk}) \;\; {\rm Independent} \\
\log\left(\frac{p_{ijk}}{1-p_{ijk}}\right) &=& \mu + \alpha_i + \beta_j + \gamma
_k
\end{eqnarray}
where treatment-style constraints were employed forcing $\alpha_1 =
\beta_1 = \gamma_1 = 0$.
\section{Results}
\label{results}
(In Results provide the findings (eg. the final models, estimate's
s.e.'s, confidence intervals, principal summarizing quantities [numerical
\& graphical], ...) and especially important points (unexpected
predictor variables, ...). Describe examinations carried out of the basic
assumptions made.'') \\
In this section we present the results for the analyses described in
section~\ref{methods}. Fitting the model~(\ref{eq1}) using maximum
liklihood leads to the following estimates:
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{r|c|c}
\hline
param. & estimate & estimated SE \\
\hline
$\mu$ & 6.11 & 1.34 \\
$\alpha_2$ & -1.52 & 0.71 \\
$\beta_2$ & -2.03 & 0.86 \\
\hline
\end{tabular}

% Incorporating postscript files into your report can make
% you look quite smart -- that's my secret to success. Here
% is how it is done.

\section{Discussion}
\label{discussion}
(Among other things, discuss the reasonableness of the assumptions
upon which your analysis is based. Discuss
limitations of the model(s) you fit.
You might indicate areas for further investigation. Interpret
conclusions in the context of the original scientific question(s).)\\
\section{Conclusion}
\label{conclusion}
(Review important parts of the analysis and important findings. Discuss how you
analysis addressed the original scientific question)\\

% You might also like to include your raw commands/computer out here.
% perhaps in the form of an appendix section. Otherwise you might just
% add it as a seperate document
%
% One way to make it look distinctly different (and also get things
% lining up properly) is to use the Latex verbatim environment

% \begin{verbatim}
% this text should like typewriter like
