       Attn Coral reef or Tropical Marine ecosytem researchers 

        We are organising 5 one month expeditions during the next 2 years to 
remote unstudied tropical marine ecosystems off the island of Borneo.  These 
include soft bottoms, coral reefs & mangrove swamps.   We should be able to 
provide the resources for most suitable research topics in taxonomy, 
ecology, biology, behaviour, resources etc.   If you can provide funds for 
yourself  (flights & food mostly),  we would be interested in hearing from you.
