Journal Notification

When each volume is closed, you will have received the corresponding

to our subscribers. In short time, Titles, Summaries and Bibliographies

Don`t forget ZooChat, it has its moments! Curators, Keepers, Vets,
Researchers letting their hair down at the end of the day. Very
lighthearted most of the time. Serious some of the time. Useful for making
contacts and generally having fun.

Most e-mail packages will allow you to point and click on the site
address. This should launch your web browser and send you directly to the
site. If your package will not do this you will have to use cut and paste.
Cutting from this e-mail and pasting in your browsers address
column...then press return and away you go! The other problem you may have
is that the site address is longer than the page width. You will have to
cut and paste twice, taking care that you marry to the two halves exactly.
Some of these links are quite short lived, but I have checked them all
today and they all work.. If you have a problem, do let me know.

Zoo News is currently sent to over 300 interested parties worldwide each
week. If you know of anyone who you think would like to be included please
e-mail me. If you would like to include notification of any items of
interest i.e. Meetings or seminars please contact me.

Kind Regards,

Wishing you a wonderful week,
