Due to the interdisciplinary nature of symbiosis research, there is the
definite need for improved communication among symbiosis researchers
of different provenience.
As a microbiologist who ventured into insect/microbe associations
a couple of years ago I was amazed and fascinated of the numerous
examples of such interactions of which I was completely unaware before.
Yet many of the phenomena described by and long-known to zoologists are
only marginally understood on the side of the microbes and their
physiology, mainly because only a few microbiological labs are
focusing on such questions.
A thank-you to James White for leading the initiative for this newsgroup
and his offer to serve a a discussion leader. I am looking forward to
the establishment of this newsgroup and hope it will be a valuable forum
for symbiosis research.
