    Have you got a topic that you need to write about, or do you have to choose one?

    If you haven't got a topic, then the first step is to choose one. Make sure you relate it to something that is on your biology course. And it would help if you make a study question from this topic and try and answer this in your writing. But you could equally just write a 'narrative-type' essay about a certain topic.

    The next step would be to find literature on the topic. Sources you can use are mainly textbooks, journal articles, government publications etc. A lot of things can be found by doing a search on google scholar. Read a few of these and then start planning the points you could make.

    Then get writing! If you google 'how to write a literature review' you should find plenty of guidance on the whole process. Good luck
