There are two I know of.  One is an algae-l and the  other a new one
started by PSA.  I think algae-l is fairly active.  I include
instructions after my sig on how to subscribe, since it is fairly short.
I have not followed either group, just noted them in bionet.announce.

Dear Colleague:

Some people have experienced difficulties signing on to ALGAE-L,
the public list that replaced Algal News and which will in future
distribute messages of common interest to phycologists who
subscribe.  Please note that I cannot subscribe on you behalf and
that you must follow this procedure:


Send a mail message to  LISTSERV at IRLEARN.UCD.IE  [please note that
it is NOT "LISTSERVER" but "LISTSERV"] with no subject heading and
the single line: SUB ALGAE-L followed, on the same line by your
first name and your second name [please note that it is NOT "ALGAL-


Send a mail message to  LISTSERV at IRLEARN.UCD.IE  [please note that
it is NOT "LISTSERVER" but "LISTSERV"] with no subject heading and
the single line:


This will result in your being sent a list of all the current
members that have subscribed to ALGAE-L.


To send a message to all the people currently subscribed to the
list, just send your mail message to ALGAE-L at IRLEARN.UCD.IE.  This
is  called "sending  mail to the list", because you send mail to a
single address and LISTSERV makes copies for all the people  who 
have subscribed. Be sure to include your e-mail address at the end
of any such message. Try not to send frivolous messages as people
will rapidly signoff the list and its effect will be diminished.

Please contact me directly if you have any further difficulties.
