Newsgroup charter:

Physiological ecology currently has its own section within the
Ecological Society of America; it contains nearly 1,000 members.
Current research and teaching interests of ecophysiologists range from
molecular through ecosystem approaches and include all aspects of
nutrient and carbon cycles, cell and whole-organism metabolism, life
history, evolution, and various modeling endeavors.  Environmental
physiology is a component of many other related societies, including
those in biometeorology, agriculture, and forestry, all of whom
benefit from and communicate with this group.

It is anticipated that the newsgroup will focus on topics such

* methodologies and instrumentation for ecophysiology
* instructional approaches and teaching environmental physiology
* announcements of meetings and job openings
* discussion of ways to increase awareness and opportunities of
  those interested in ecophysiology

This newsgroup will be moderated to ensure that discussion will
remain useful to the professional ecophysiologist. This group
will be moderated by the head of the Physiological Ecology
Section of the Ecological Society of America, or his/her
designee.  The current head Martyn Caldwell <mmc at cc.usu.edu>,
would serve as the initial moderator.  

Discussion of controversial issues within ecophysiology (and the
expression and justification of contested viewpoints) is
encouraged.  Posts will be rejected that do not contribute to the
discussion, e.g. "flames", posts without any scientific merit, or
posts that do not contribute any new material.  If a submission
is rejected, the moderator will inform the poster of the reason
for the rejection.  

Physiological ecology and related subdisciplines are rapidly
growing emphasis in ecology with a need to rapidly exchange
technical information and to post queries for solving technical
issues related to field and laboratory studies.  Existing
newsgroups are too broad to effectively serve the needs of this
ecological subdiscipline.
