|  The SKI-System is now available via anonymous FTP from the         |
|  following sites:-                                                  |

|  SKIS is a totally new biodiversity information management system   |
|  allowing basic data capture with user control over Taxonomic       |
|  Standards.  SKIS_52.ZIP contains the fully functional program      |
|  - SKI_IN.EXE, data files (NAMs - for Birds, Mammals, Plants),      |
|  documentation and examples.    SKIS is MSDOS-based.                |
|                                                                     |
|  SKI_IN builds and organizes annotated taxonomic checklists         |
|  (SKI-files). The Biological Classification is used as an           |
|  hierarchical Index; this is represented by a short and             |
|  meaningful code. SKI_INput has many data management facilities,    |
|  allowing SKI-files to be passed to spreadsheets or database        |
|  programs for other use.                                            |
|                                                                     |
|  The file: SKIS_52.ZIP, requires PKZIP v2.04G to decompress the     |
|  files it contains. (via garbo.uwasa.fi:/pc/arcers pkz204g.exe)     |
|                                                                     |
|  Free to private individuals.                                       |
|  Businesses will require a negotiated licence.                      |

For those new to FTP, below is an example of
a typical FTP session:

 ftp garbo.uwasa.fi        #FTP connect to Garbo
 anonymous                 #Use this name to get temporary privileges
 Type (at least) the first part of your email address as your password
 cd /pc/science            #Go to the relevant directory
 bin                       #Use the binary mode in program transfers
 dir                       #Get a look at the directory's contents
 get skis_52.zip           #Get the (221K) file to your default directory
 close                     #Close the connection to Garbo
 quit                      #Quit the FTP program
