Linda,


I searched an extensive (but incomplete) list of discussion lists and did not



find any specific veterinarian lists. However, I found some that may help:




FELINE-L <UMNEWS%MAINE.BITNET at VM1.NODAK.EDU>

   Mailing list for the discussion and disseminattion issues, legislation impact
ing these
   animals, management in zoos, wildlife parks and the like, care, feeding,
   veterinary considerations, research use of cats, animal rights concerns,
   almost any other area dealing with any sort of cat, including showing,
   breeding, or training.

   The list presently is running on UMNEWS at MAINE.  We anticipate transferring
   this discussion to our LISTSEsoon as it is installed and available.

   To post messages using E-mail, send to UMNEWS at MAINE with either a "TO:"
   entry in the form:
      TO: FELINE-L Discussion <UMNEWS at MAINE>
   or a "SUBJECT:" entry of:
      SUBJECT:  UMBB.FELINE-L Your_on_subject_entry_goes_here Non-BitNet
   users should use "UMNEWS%MAINE.BITNET at VM1.NODAK.EDU" instead of
   "UMNEWS at MAINE".

      If you are going to be away from your computer for any extended period,
      PLEASE unsubscribe from the list, then re-subscribe when you return. To

      starts at 00001 for the oldest digest.





ETHOLOGY%FINHUTC.BITNET at CUNYVM.CUNY.EDU

   An unmoderated mailing list for the discussion of animal behaviour and
   behavioural ecology. Possible top be e.g. new or controversial
   theories, new research methods, and equipment. Announcements of books   paper
s, conferences, new software for behavioural analysis etc., are also
   encourng a command via an
   interactive message:
      TELL LISTSERV AT FINHUTC SUB ETHOLOGY John Doe
   or SEND LISTSERV at FINHUDoe
   If you are at a non-BitNet site, or where you cannot send interactive
   messages, you can send mail to LIS.EDU
   where the first non-header line consists of:

POPULATION-BIOLOGY <biosci%NET.BIO.NET at VM1.NODAK.EDU>

   Population Biology is a synthesis of population ecology and population
   genetics, pursuing a unified theory to explain the structure, functioning
   and evolution of populations of living beings.  Such populations are very
 exhibiting a variety of phenomena that we stil do not
   master.  Just to quote a famous example, multiannual density cycles (e.g.
   in lemmings) have not received a satisfactory expalnation, despite of
   decades of debated studies and speculations.  Population Biology is a very
   active field, encompassing such diverse approaches as tenacious, harsh
   field work to track long term demographic and genetic fluctuations, or
   sophisticated conversations with a computer about strange attractors
   possibly causing chaos in the densiat can be discussed include: ecology, popu
lation genetics,
   systematics, evolution, morphometry, inter mathematical modelling, population
 regulation, pest control,
   speciation, chromosomal evolution, social behavgy in population study, popula
tion management of endangered
   species, applications of molecular biology techniques, etc., and, last but
   not least, your own topic.  There is no restriction on the species:
   viruses, protokaryotes, plants, animals (including man), mythic or extinct
   species, computer- simulated species...  Technical problems, book reviews,
ments and so on are also welcome.

   The BITNET and USENET names of the new group are:
