SIMLA

     On behalf of the Board of the Asa Wright Nature Centre who are
currently responsible for the Simla Research Station, Arima Valley,
Trinidad, I wish to circulate as widely as possible the following
request. Please feel free to forward this message to anyone who
will have an interest.

     The Asa Wright Nature Centre Management Committee has recently
agreed to produce an historical record of the William Beebee
Tropical Research Station at Simla for future publication.  The
historical background will include an account of the establishment
and development of the Research Station and the publication is
expected to contain a photorecord of the facilities and a full
bibliography of the research done by persons who have lodged at
SIMLA. In the process of compiling the bibliography, it is hoped
that a full collection of reprints or copies of papers reflecting
the research done at SIMLA will be amassed so as to replace that
which has dissipated over the years.

     It is requested that anyone with any connection with SIMLA,
having lodged there or even visited briefly, who may have
information or materials relevant to this endeavour, please send
such materials to:

     Dr Mary Alkins-Koo
     Zoology Unit, Department of Life Sciences
     The University of the West Indies
     St Augustine, Trinidad, West Indies

     Tel: (868) 662-2002
     Fax: (868) 663-9686
     Email: mak at centre.uwi.tt (Please limit messages to 1-2 pages)

     In addition to any contributions on historical background and
research, any anecdotes or photographs on the realities of tropical
research or the finer moments at SIMLA would be appreciated and
considered for inclusion. All contributors will be appropriately
acknowledged.
