------===== WELCOME TO WADERS-L ======-------
The Avian Demography Unit at the Deparment of Statistical
Sciences, University of Cape Town, has recently launched
a new list server dedicated to waders. What we call Waders
(or shorebirds) are members of the family Charadriidae.
They are not "wading birds", a term used to refer to long-
legged herons, egrets, ibises and storks.
MEMBERSHIP of Waders-l is open to all, it is not restricted
in any way, professionals and amateurs are welcome to join
the discussion group.
Our aim is to provide the 'waderologists' community with a way
of exchanging information and to keep in contact on a worldwide
Examples of its (potential) use are requests for and offers of
information, ideas, data and collected material, advertising
employment, bursary, fellowship and volunteer opportunities,
notices of meetings, availability of written materials (e.g.
expedition reports, books, proceedings, reprints), etc.
To subscribe to the list send a message to
LISTSERVER at UCT.AC.ZA
and in the body of the message put the following command

Once you have been added to the list waders-l you will get a
welcoming message with additional information.
