Inquire about bibliography

Postby yaozhao » Sun Oct 28, 2018 11:35 pm

@article{
Birdetal2001,
	Author = {Bird, R. B. and Smith, E. A. and Bird, D. W.},
	Title = {The hunting handicap: costly signaling in human foraging strategies},
	Journal = {Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology},
	Volume = {50},
	Pages = {9-19},
	Year = {2001} }


The first line has mistakes. But I type them following a tutorial. What's the mistake?

Many thanks in advance!

How do you know that there is a mistake? Which error message do you get?

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
    @article{
    Birdetal2001,
    	Author = {Bird, R. B. and Smith, E. A. and Bird, D. W.},
    	Title = {The hunting handicap: costly signaling in human foraging strategies},
    	Journal = {Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology},
    	Volume = {50},
    	Pages = {9-19},
    	Year = {2001} }
\end{filecontents}
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[backend=biber]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{\jobname.bib}
\begin{document}
I doubt that there is any useful information here~\cite{Birdetal2001}.
\printbibliography
\end{document}
It works perfectly fine.

The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
