Dear Colleague,

We are organizing a Keystone Symposium entitled, "Molecular Approaches to
Marine Ecology and Evolution."  The symposium will be held in Santa Fe, 
March 5-11,1995. 

The meeting will consist of morning and evening invited plenary talks and
early evening contributed poster sessions. 

The deadline for submission of abstracts for posters is NOVEMBER 1.  We
will accept posters after that but it will not be posssible to include
those abstracts in the abstracts volume. 

If you are interested in contributiong a poster or attending the meeting
please contact either of us or the Keystone Symposium office directly. 
Keystone - (303)262-1230 - [FAX (303) 262- 1525]. 

For more information about the meeting contact either:
