Hi Mike,

In reference to a refereed photo journal, I suggest you visit the Marine
Photobank (www.marinephotobank.org).  The Marine Photobank is a free
visual resource that collect and provides photos, images and graphics that
shed light on ocean research and conservation issues.

We will gladly support any needs to gather and make imagery available. 
Membership is free and images and readily accessible.  There are a host of
existing galleries covering a range of worldwide subjects including:
- Deep Sea Habitat
- Marine Research and Education
- Reefs in Peril/Coral Bleaching
- Marine Pollution and Trash
- Marine Reserves/Marine Protected Areas
- Marine Ecological Processes
- Then and Now Comparisons
- Fishery Bycatch
- Coastal Development

If this sounds like this it might fit your needs, I would be happy to help
and you and other researchers upload and better share your image resources
among your colleagues and others.  Members can easily upload their own
images and provide the necessary backround information including a weblink
to direct traffic to their research sites for further information.

We can establish galleries for various biology groups or strategize on the
best way to make the images available.

That's a big part of our mission and we'd be happy to help.

I am available to further discuss.

Take care,

Dear everybody,

My colleague recently suggested to me that it might be a good idea to
establish a refereed photo journal for ecologists, ethologists (and
perhaps other biology fields). Cutting costs to all the potential colour
images could be done by launching an entirely web-based journal.

Having submitted yet another potential Reef Site note, and having a
confirmation mail again emphasizing that Coral Reefs are drowning under
an immense amount of Reef Site Note submissions, I and my colleague
that there may be a need for such a photo journal?

I am not sure if this is a good or or bad idea, but I believe
it would be worthwhile debating. Please correct and inform me, if
such a journal already exist: I am not aware of any.

I wonder if Nikon, Canon and other similar companies would be
interested in sponsoring such a journal?

Cheers, Mike
