   I work in the laboratory of Prof. Strzelczyk on:
physiology and ecology of ectomycorrhizal fungi- nad
bacteria and actinomycetes of soil, rhizosphere and
mycorrhizosphere of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) - with
special emphasis on: production of biologically active
substances like: plant growth hormones, B-vitamins,
hydrolytic enzymes and others; among others on: N2-fixing
mycorrhiza-associated bacteria: azospirilla and bacilli.

   I am a member of BNFNET-L ("Biological Nitrogen Fixation
Forum" list) since April 1992.

   Hereby I would like to summarize the benefits I have -
due to this membership:

1. Information about e-mail addresses and specifix
interest/expertise area of other members of list - > 100
colleagues worldwide, working on different aspects of
biological nitrogen fixation;

2. Learning about any most current ("most hot") topics of
BNF - thanks messages posted to this list (e. g. about
molecular ecology of BNF);

3. Learning about some other electronic information
resources - thanks posted newsletters (e. g. about Joe
Hanus's & Larry Moore's MGD);

4. Finding e-mail addresses of colleagues of interests close
to mine (e. g. Bill Chapman, Peter New);

5. Active participation (authorship of 2 papers: P-8 and P-
10) in 2BNFCC "2nd BNFNET Annual Computer Conference" -
"Ecology of Nitrogen-Fixing Bacteria" - enabling me to
interact with colleagues from different parts of world.

   Concluding: I am very satisfied with being the member of
BNFNET-L. Therefore I strongly support the idea to include
it into BIOSCI interest/usenet groups, taking into account
the possibility of presenting it to the broader audience and
attracting many potential new members.

Harper's and E-L. Foo's appeals to vote....).
