This Bionet.biology.vectors newsgroup has been unused for some years.
It's charter area, "Research & control of arthropods which transmit disease"
now has been subsumed by a new Bionet discussion list, bionet.Arthropod
Arthropod vector biologists may wish to use this new forum for public news/discussion.

The purpose of the ARTHROPOD newsgroup is to provide a public
forum for scientific discussion, communication and collaboration
of shared biology interests among scientists studying species of
Arthropoda, including insects and crustaceans.
Arthropods (phylum Arthropoda) are the largest phylum of animals
and include the insects, arachnids, crustaceans, and others. They
make up over 75% of all currently known living and fossil
organisms, with over one million species described in all.
Topics of major interest include: Evolution and phylogenetics of
arthropods; Genomics including comparative genomics, genome
databases and resources, next generation technology and methods;
Vector arthropods of human and agricultural diseases.
Other areas of evolutionary biology, ecology and enviroment,
genomics, molecular and organismal biology, methods and
biotechnology, informatics and databases touching on biology of
arthropods are of interest.
In addition this newsgroup will provide a forum for the exchange
of information about future meetings of interest to those
studying insects, crustaceans and other arthropods, and a venue
for help and sharing of methods and techniques.
