I propose a vote for establishing a new BIOSCI
group for tropical biology (bionet.tropical).

The newsgroup would be for information channel on tropical
biology matters including e.g. announcements on meetings,
courses, recent advances on the field and discussion. 

The intensifying world-wide cowork between biologists interested
in tropical biology is the basis for the need for a special group
in BIOSCI for tropical biology.
