What is the best method of listing specific characteristics when writing scientifically. My example:
The study sites range in area from 1000 m² to 1200 m², cover depths of 0.08 to 5.7 m, range in altitude from 0 to 100 m, and span latitudes of between −40 to 50 °N.
Note that XX here is a variable name.
I am not convinced that I am writing this in the best possible way. For example, am I using cover, range, span in the correct way here? Is there a specific rule to follow in scientific writing?
