Thanks for posting this info, Mike - it is is a good example of the sort
of thing we can do with bionet.plants even if we can't all use Gopher!

Our news system has been chaotic recently as I try to use "cnews" to
expire articles for the first time (!).  Needless to say things did not
go exactly to plan, and I've been wondering if it was all worth the
effort ...

I've been doing my bit to spread the word about bionet.plants, but we
really do seem to have lost momentum don't we?

My own work is progressing steadily and, like others I suppose, I have
not really had time to spend posting interesting/provocative/whatever
articles here because I have been busy with 'real' work elsewhere.
