There has been a good contingent of folks on this and other lists who have
voiced dismay at Texas A&M University at Galveston's move to make the
Invertebrate Zoology course an elective for Marine Biology majors, and have
asked for a contact at the University to make their opinion known.

I suggest sending an e-mail to the President of the University, Dr. Robert
M. Gates:
as well as to Dr. Gil Rowe, Department Head: roweg at
