LEFEVRE@SJSUVM1 poses the question to biological anthropologists, "How is it that a species which sprang from the earth as all other species, can destroy the earth -- extinguishing all other species on an order described as the "Sixth Extinction?" RESEARCH IIHER has started discussions with the George Washington University Computer Center about setting up a Bioanthropological Gopher, which would make data files, bibliographic files, graphic files, etc. available for searching and downloading via normal BITNET and INTERNET connections. Individuals interested in the development of this service and who may have data to contribute should reply to HUMEVO@GWUVM. EDUCATION The Bioanthropological "State-of-the-Science" Summer Institute scheduled for this coming June has been postponed until June 1994 because of insufficient subscription. Details for the 1994 Summer Institute will be publicized next month.
