Hi All:

A good friend of my is in charge of the program described below, and I
that there might be some coral reef projects that you might want to submit
it.  Good publicity for your work and some pretty good prizes as well!

        Towards Best Practices (TBP) is a new electronic forum, built as a
for the conservation community.  The eForum, at
<http://www.nbii.gov/datainfo/bestpractices/index.html>  allows researchers,
policy-makers, students, and others to develop principles and practices
related to the study and management of the biocomplexity.

        The TBP website is now actively soliciting submissions of Best
Practices to
the eForum. Best Practices can cover far ranging topics, from practices
related to agriculture, biodiversity, and conservation economics, to methods
for modeling impacts of human populations or sustainable development.  After
preliminary review by an Advisory Board, submissions will be posted on the
eForum where the work can be discussed and developed in an open, public,
electronic community.  All posted submissions will also be eligible for one
several Awards for Excellence, including sponsorship of travel to the annual
meeting of the Society for Conservation Biology.

        The forum has been developed by National Biological Information
Infrastructure (NBII), in partnership with CSA, a leading bibliographic
database provider, and the Center for Applied Biodiversity Science at
Conservation International.

about the Call For Submissions as well as the Awards for Excellence in Best
Practices, and about the rich range of resources available through the
to researchers, policy-makers, and others interested in biocomplexity and
