I tend to agree.  As a vertebrate physiologist I know that the study of 
invertebrates has been every important but that knowledge hasn't
translated into reading much of the invertebrate literature.  The reality
is that I will read threads devoted to specific issues if I stumble
across them, but I doubt that bionet.neuroscience,invertebrate would be
on my regular reading list.

On the other hand it may be that the lack of specific group is inhibiting
people posting questions in this more general newsgroup.

It is a problem affecting a few other newsgroups too.
sci.med.psychobiology is mostly about prozac etc.
