I recently subscribed to this newsgroup and have really enjoyed it. I am
interested in finding out if there are any newsgroups relevant to my area
of research: Soil Biology and Biochemistry (mainly microbiology).
Specifically, I am doing my Ph.D in bioremediation.
I would also be interested in hearing from women in this field, personally.
Just as a point of interest, 62% of the grad students in my department
are female, and we are all very interested in the "receptiveness" of the
scientific community to female colleagues.
If anyone knows of any soil or bioremediation newsgroups, please let me know.
