The main headings in the article are ''second'' level headings, defined with two equals signs in the wikitext. You never need to use the top-level heading style, defined with one equals sign, as it is reserved for article titles. As with a scientific article, you have plenty of freedom about how to organize your content, but the reader may have some expectations about the order and style that you may want to take into account. <ref>Mooney et al., 2013.

De- extinction is the process of creating an organism which is or greatly resembles a member of an extinct species. De- extinction requires an in-depth study of the biophysical conditions where the species can live and reproduce in relation to other species, including humans and adapt to environmental changes [1]. There are some pros and cons when it comes to de-extinction and bring back species. There are ways in which de-extinction can occur and that would be by cloning. The woolly mammoth is in the front running to the species to bring back, followed by the passenger pigeon.

Methods

Cloning is one of the main methods to bringing back these extinct animals. It takes extensive research, highly trained professionals and the best technology.

Cloning

Cloning relies heavily on genetic engineering and technology and the use of DNA synthesizing. [1] Scientists believe that they have the type of technology to bring back species that have been extinct. Cross-species cloning is using a mammal that is closely related to the other animal. The scientists can use donor cells to transfer genetic material from one cell to another. The procedure used to produce cloning animals involves several steps and highly trained professionals. The first step is to identify a suitable nuclear donor cell in which to clone. Skin cells are often used to extract the DNA to put into those donor cells [2].

You can add as many sections as you think you need to 'spiral out' from the core of the topic. Use judgment to decide when to split out a separate article.

Subheading

In longer articles, it may make sense to have another level of headings. There are not many occasions when you will need to use H4 headings (four = signs), so don't go there unless it's unavoidable. Never use more than four.[2]
