we are pleased to announce the opening of the Biodiversity and
Ecosystems NEtwork (BENE) webserver, hosted by the W.M. Keck Center
for Genome Informatics at Texas A&M University.  In addition to the
Keck Center, the other founding partners are the

	National Performance Review NetResults project
	Smithsonian Institution
	U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

We welcome other partners.

The Uniform Resource Locator (URL) for the BENE webserver is:

The goal of the BENE webserver is to help those interested in
biodiversity and ecosystems to find information, and foster dialogue
and collaborations.  BENE also represents a demonstration of some of
the capabilities suggested for the proposed U.S.  National
Biodiversity Information Center (NBIC).

BENE also provides an Email ListServer to encourage discussions,
queries, and information sharing.  To subscribe to the BENE list, send
a message to:

     listproc at 

with the text: 

     subscribe bene <your_full_name> <your_email_address>

The subject line is ignored by the list processor.

A searchable WAIS-indexed version of the BENE Email List Archives is
available via the BENE Home Page, as well as via the Main Menu of the
Keck Gopher:


Please use the email form on the BENE WWW server to provide
