Mendeley, Zotero, Papers, and othersThe style is either built in or you can download a CSL file that is supported by most references management programs.
BibTeXBibTeX syles are usually part of a LaTeX template. Check the instructions to authors if the publisher offers a LaTeX template for this journal.

Journal articles

Those examples are references to articles in scholarly journals and how they are supposed to appear in your bibliography.

Not all journals organize their published articles in volumes and issues, so these fields are optional. Some electronic journals do not provide a page range, but instead list an article identifier. In a case like this it's safe to use the article identifier instead of the page range.

A journal article with 1 author
Sampson, Robert J. “Sociology. Moving and the neighborhood glass ceiling.” Science (New York, N.Y.) 337.6101 (2012): 1464–1465.
A journal article with 2 authors
Gorkin, David U., and Bing Ren. “Genetics: Closing the distance on obesity culprits.” Nature 507.7492 (2014): 309–310.
A journal article with 3 authors
Penner, Joyce E., Xiquan Dong, and Yang Chen. “Observational evidence of a change in radiative forcing due to the indirect aerosol effect.” Nature 427.6971 (2004): 231–234.
A journal article with 4 or more authors
Lorch, Jeffrey M. et al. “Experimental infection of bats with Geomyces destructans causes white-nose syndrome.” Nature 480.7377 (2011): 376–378.

Blog post
Luntz, Stephen. “Being In Nature Benefits Health - But How?” IFLScience. IFLScience, 23 Sep. 2015. Online. Internet. 30 Oct. 2018. . Available: https://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/being-nature-benefits-health-how/.

Reports

This example shows the general structure used for government reports, technical reports, and scientific reports. If you can't locate the report number then it might be better to cite the report as a book. For reports it is usually not individual people that are credited as authors, but a governmental department or agency like "U. S. Food and Drug Administration" or "National Cancer Institute".

Government report
Government Accountability Office. Earth Observing System: Cost and Research Issues. Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, March 6, 1996.

Theses and dissertations

Theses including Ph.D. dissertations, Master's theses or Bachelor theses follow the basic format outlined below.

Doctoral dissertation
Alla, Bharatsai. “Wellbore Stability Analysis of Sanish Field using 3-D Finite Element Model: Bakken Case Study.” Doctoral dissertation, Lafayette, LA: University of Louisiana, 2017.

News paper articles

Unlike scholarly journals, news papers do not usually have a volume and issue number. Instead, the full date and page number is required for a correct reference.

New York Times article
Kishkovsky, Sophia. “Georgia: Ex-Minister Arrested After Assailing President.” New York Times, 28 Sep. 2007: A8.
