The Photosynthesis Researchers' newsgroup will serve the interests of
professionals and students involved in all aspects of Photosynthesis
research.  This service has until now been provided by a distribution list
(PHOTOSYN at VM.TAU.AC.IL).

Here are some examples of use of the list:-

- Requests for technical information regarding protocols, materials,
  equipment, etc., used for photosynthesis-related research.

- Advertisement of academic positions and requests for employment
  (including postdoctoral positions, studentships, etc.)

- Distribution of photosynthesis-related journal listings
  Full listings:- Photosynthesis Research, Plant and Cell Physiology,
                  Photosynthetica, BBA (Bioenergetics section).
  Extracts     :- By a keyword search of bionet.journals

- Announcement of scientific meetings.

- Other assorted announcements

PLEASE BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE FORMAT BELOW - WE OFTEN RUN MORE THAN ONE
VOTE AT A TIME SO A SIMPLE "YES" OR "NO" MESSAGE WITHOUT THE NEWSGROUP
NAME MAY BE AMBIGUOUS.  Your vote should contain a single line:

YES on PHOTOSYNTHESIS

if you favor creation of the newsgroup or

NO on PHOTOSYNTHESIS

if you think that the creation of this newsgroup will adversely affect
the BIOSCI system.  If you are simply not interested in participating
in this newsgroup, please don't cast a NO vote, but instead just don't
vote at all.

The newsgroup proposal must receive at least 80 YES votes to pass and
the number of YES votes must be greater than the number of NO votes by
at least 40.  Discussion of the newsgroup proposal is now closed and
we strongly discourage posting any messages in other forums about the
fact that a CALL FOR VOTES has been issued.  Permission has been
granted to post this note to the current PHOTOSYN mailing list.

				Dave Kristofferson
				BIOSCI/bionet Manager
