Dear John,

Even if I would very much like to read news dealing with mycorrhizae, I
think that the creation of a new group, especially in the sci.bio hierarchy
is the way to go. Why not instead invest the already existing
bionet.mycology newsgroup? The traffic is still low in this group, and I
suggest that the creation of a mycorrhizae-specific newsgroup be deferred
until the number of postings to the bionet.mycology newsgroup justifies
spliting it up.

Another advantage of using the bionet hierarchy is that we can then benefit
from their archiving and support services.
