buttonELECTING THE PRESIDENT-ELECT
bar

At the Dublin conference some revisions to the IBA Constitution was proposed and approved. Among the changes was a provision to name a President-Elect of the Association as a means to provide for greater continuity. However, since a President Elect was not chosen in Dublin, it is proposed by former IBA president Ken McKinney and current president Dennis Gordon that such a person be nominated and voted on as soon as possible.

Enclosed with this newsletter you should receive a form for nominating one or more candidates to this office. Please complete the form and mail it to the IBA Secretary, Tim Wood. Or, to save time and postage, you may email your nomination(s) to tim.wood@wright.edu. Deadline for nominations will be September 1, 2002. The five top nominations will be cleared with the nominees, and a final vote will be taken through a special mailing. A ballot should be enclosed with this newsletter.

buttonISSUE FOR DISCUSSION: PUBLISHING IBA CONFERENCE PAPERS.
bar

At the IBA Council meeting in Dublin July 15 the issue was raised about how best to publish and distribute conference proceedings. Should we continue with disparate bound volumes, or should there be a recognizable series? Do we like the Balkema model in which the publisher provides inexpensive volumes and handles all the marketing and distribution? Or is it too much trouble for authors to adapt manuscripts to Balkema’s strict template? Here are several views:

Claus Nielsen: At the meeting in Dublin we discussed future proceedings volumes, and I mentioned the advantage of getting the proceedings printed as a volume in a journal. A remark in the opinion column in "Nature" (vol. 413, p. 1; September 2001) inspires me to comment on the topic once more. The remark is: "... nor will much of the grey literature, such as conference proceedings ...". If our conference proceedings in the future will be considered "grey literature" nobody should be encouraged to publish in them; especially young bryozoologists who need to document their qualifications by getting their papers into prestigious journals will not be able to "afford" publishing good papers in our volumes. I see several other societies, of zoologists working on poriferans, rotifers, polychaetes, rotifers etc, publishing their volumes in journals such as Memoirs of the Queensland Museum, Zoologischer Anzeiger, Hydrobiologia. We ought to do the same whenever possible. If we could get an agreement with a journal about publishing the volume from a number of conferences it would become the place to look for "our" papers, and if it is a good journal it could again become advantageous to get papers printed in the proceedings, and it would also make the papers more accessible because libraries are more willing to buy journals than proceedings volumes.I hope that future conference hosts will make an effort to make the proceedings volumes easily accessible by getting them into a journal.

Rolf Schmidt: “I agree whole heartedly that we should not add to the mountain of 'grey literature'. It is very important to achieve a consistency so that libraries acquire a continuous series. This is most likely to happen through a journal.

But in recent years most of the scientific publishing houses seem to have lost the plot. I was not impressed by Balkema forcing us to format our articles to perfection (it was bad enough if you had lots of time and knew what you were doing) and now Balkema probably has the copyright for how it appears in the volume. I've also seen a major decline in the quality of image reproduction in Elsevier publications such as Geobios. I am quite fed up with their attitude that they are doing scientists a favour by publishing our articles, when it is the scientist who has done ALL the work and often even had to fork out money for the publication, only to surrender the copyright. I also agree with the possibility that interesting and important 'notes' will not be published if we have to conform to the (sometimes arbitrary) standards of a journal. If the problem is that our current format doesn't count any of the citation indexes, I can't see a problem with submitting two versions, one to the conference and one to a journal (one of my lecturers has been publishing the same article for the last 10 years with minor revisions and gets away with it).

To summarise my tirade: I would prefer to stay away from the journal format but turn it into a consistent series. If we can show the promise of regular future publications, maybe we can even do a deal with a publisher.”

Matt Dick: Claus raised a very good point. While I agree with him in some respects, a couple of things need to be considered (forgive an apparent cynicism which might also be termed 'reality'):
a) It may indeed be the case that bryozoologists (especially young ones establishing careers) cannot afford publishing good papers as 'gray literature.' I didn't submit to the Dublin proceedings this last year partly for this reason and partly because of length restrictions. However, I also have the impression that previous IBA volumes have in some cases included short studies that might not be acceptable to a full-blown journal. Furthermore, I have heard comments in the past about the "low" or "marginal" quality of some of the papers appearing in IBA volumes. If the proceedings are to be published in a [prestigious] journal, would this raise the standard of review and prohibit publication of what amount to notes or marginal papers which are, nonetheless, very useful to the community of bryozoologists?
b) The problem is not restricted to the so-called "gray literature." Web-based article indices reference only a rather small subset of the burgeoning number of journals, and I believe that even some of the journals mentioned by Claus are not referenced by commonly used article indices in the U.S. such as Web of Science and Biosis. So, in fact, even so-called prestigious journals may effectively function as gray literature as far as computer searching access is concerned.
c) Playing the devil's advocate, I suggest that (aside from rather cumbersome citations) the existing publication format serves us well. The destination of papers is self-selecting. That is, those investigators for whom publication in 'prestigious' journals is essential to career development will submit to those journals. The sme goes for quality papers which an established investigator may want to publish in a proceedings volume, but which are too long for the length restrictions in the IBA volumes. In neither case is the published information lost or inaccessible to bryozoologists! The proceedings volumes may in fact be a good outlet for short papers which would be marginal for publication in journals for a variety of reasons, and may in fact aid young investigators by helping them augment their "publication count" by serving as an outlet for these papers.

Hugo Moyano: The conference results volumes should continue to exist in my opinion. This is based on the rich and important information contained in them. That information is on Bryozoa and primarily for bryozoologists, therefore the proceeding are very valuable per se. I do not think they should change their present status. And if an IBA member qualifies his paper as extraordinary or so relevant to remain concealed in the Proceedings, he is free to send his manuscript elsewhere. On the other hand, the quality of papers is the result of peer review based on the bryozoologists themselves as revisors, what ensures quality at least in the bryozoan contents of each paper. In addition, bryozoologists actually publish most of their papers in other scientific journals being permanently subjected to revision by editorial committees and referees improving their papers, what allows to think that they will present good papers to be included in the Proceedings. If the motion of publishing under the shelter of a "main stream" journal a good solution could be what is exemplified by "Magellan_Antarctic ecosystens that drifted apart" published as a supplemental issue of vol 63 of Scientia Marina. In it are the results of an international workshop and editorial policies had to do more with form than with contents.

Jon Todd: Bryozoans are very much a minority interest and we need to sell them as fabulous organisms for study. I think no matter how well we package conference volumes they will continue to be seen almost solely by bryozoologists. For this reason, if only this reason, I suggest that we should try to get a volume produced as a special volume of a widely read, distinguished and of course, appropriate journal and then review the situation as concerns citations etc.

Eckart Håkansson: I agree that we should try to maintain the proceedings volumes as separate entities also for future conferences - but as I recall it, the suggestion in Dublin was to do just that within the frame of a formal journal (and I also have some recollection that a number of likely candidates were mentioned). I would hate to see all the sexy bryozoan stuff get lost in an ever increasing cloud of grey literature, so I strongly urge that we ask somebody - say Claus Nielsen - to investigate this matter further.

Ken McKinney: I find myself looking at the proceedings volumes rather conservatively. When Jeremy and I were working on BRYOZOAN EVOLUTION, we found that they were a goldmine of information for several questions that we wanted to address. Many of the papers that were useful to us may very well have been rejected from a journal interested in their citation index. Yet, much basic data would either never have been published or would be much less accessible and difficult to find had it not been available in the proceedings volumes. Granted, almost all contributions eventually are accepted into the volumes, but the editor of each of them still has the power to reject any paper that falls below a certain standard. When the proceedings volumes were initiated, they contained brief reports of 'work in progress', with the understanding that more comprehensive papers would cover the same ground later. The volumes soon evolved to include more than works in progress, including papers in which new taxa are named as well as final products of a wide variety of non-taxonomic research.

If tying the proceedings volumes to a journal means that criteria of topic (would the journal not want alpha taxonomy? maybe no molecular-based phylogenies if it is basically an ecology journal), polish, or 'importance' are applied, then the study of bryozoans loses out in general, I think.

We each, whether a graduate student or a superfluous old geezer, have the option of NOT submitting a manuscript for the volume and sending it to a mainstream or sidestream journal if we want.

Perhaps the IBA would gain in prestige if its proceedings were to be published in a fairly prominent journal. But at the same time we would be precluding publication of a package of papers that vary wildly (yes, wildly, not widely) in their 'quality' and current importance but that contribute to an expanded base of information that may ultimately be used for much more than seen at the time of publication.

Additional contributions to this discussion may be sent to IBA President Dennis Gordon.

Bill Banta is now retired and no longer active in bryozoan research. However, he still has an extensive collection of bryozoan books and reprints which occupies several bookshelves and file cabinets. There are also cheilostome and stenolaemate specimens, mostly slide-mounted, including some types. Bill would like to donate the entire collection to a young person with a good research record in cheilostome anatomy. He would request only that the collection not be broken up or sold, but that it be combined with the recipient's collection and given away as a unit when the recipient retires or leaves the field. To nominate yourself or someone else for the gift, please contact Bill at x_wcbanta@comcast.net or Tel. 301-718-4217 (USA).

Krister Brood left his position with the Swedish National Museum several years ago, according to Sten Schager. His wife can be reached via the Stockholm University Library, Geology Division (www.su.se, staff Margareta Brood). She indicates that Krister is in poor health and will probably be inactive.

Simone Pouyet has retired from the Department of Earth sciences, University Claude-Bernard in Lyon. She is no longer working on bryozoans.

Sten Schager has a new address (see address list).

Rolf Schmidt. “I'm working with David Holloway (Trilobite guy). At the moment I'm coming to terms (or to blows as the case may be) with the collection database (horrible texpress kinda thing). I'll also be responsible for relocationg the collections (lots of it type) from the humidity affected area (often over 80% moisture - even the metal shelves are growing mould), and other things like managing loans etcetcetc. They're a nice bunch here, and the position is ongoing, so who knows, I may still be here in 20 years!”

Reggie Scolaro left BP Exploration in May 1991, taking a position as an Geological Specialist with Saudi Aramco. He worked in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia for 8 1/2 years, returning to the US in November, 1999. He was assigned projects during the early part of his tenure in Saudi Arabia on the geology of the Red Sea region and during the latter part a variety of training projects. He is now an independent consultant, currently working for BP in Houston, Texas.

Ines Wegener informs us that she has moved to a new profession and is no longer working on bryozoans.

JOHN D. SOULE
October 11, 1920 - June 30, 2001.

John D. Soule, Ph.D., died June 30, 2001, after a lengthy battle with Parkinson’s Disease. He was affiliated with the University of Southern California (USC)0020School of Dentistry from 1950 to 1991, when he became Emeritus Professor but remained active in research until shortly before his death. He served as Instructor, Assistant Professor, and Associate Professor of Histology-Pathology from 1950 to 1960, and as Professor of Histology from 1960 to 1991. He chaired the Department of Histology from 1963 to 1977, and also served several terms as Chairman of Basic Sciences and a term as Assistant Dean for Admissions.

Dr. Soule held joint appointments as Professor of Biological Sciences at USC and Curator of the Allan hancock Foundation from 1960 to 1991. He was also a long-time Research Associate of the American Museum of Natural History in New York, of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, and of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

Dr. Soule’s fields or research included the evolution of dentition in lower vertebrates, the development of histological stains (Soule’s Gold Chloride Stain), bioadhesives secreted by encrusting marine invertebrates, and the systematics and ecology of marine bryozoans. In his research on bryozoans and on environmental impacts, Dr. Soule teamed with his wife, Dr. Dorothy Soule, USC Research Professor of Marine Biology. Their studies took them to many tropical Pacficic islands as well as to Britain and Europe. Together they established an environmental impact research program, Harbors Environmental Projects, at USC, which performed biological, chemical, and oceanographic studies of local harbors and marinas. The Project also studied impacts of oil spills, oil dispersant use, dredging, and disposal of domestic and industrial wastes, addressing these issues on both Atlantic and Pacific coasts, the Caribbean and American Samoa. Dr. Soule was author or co-author of more than 100 publications.

In additional to his long-time membership in the International Bryozoology Association, Dr. Soule was also active in the International Association of Dental Research, American Society for Dental Schools, American Microscopical Society, American Institute of Biological Sciences, Pacific Science Association, Delta Phy Alpha, Omicron Kappa Epsilon (OKE), Sigma and Sigma Xi. He was a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, California Academy of Sciences and Southern California Academy of Sciences (SCAS). He served as board member and president of the International Bryozoology Association, president of the USC chapters of OKU, and Sigma Xi, and numerous terms on the board of SCAS.

Born in East Moline, Illinois, Dr. Soule graduate from Western Military School in Alton, Illinois, in 1938, and received a B.A. from Miami University (Oxford, Ohio) in 1942. Dorothy Soule writes, “We met when John was a senior at Miami and I a freshman, as he was my zoology lab assistant. We got engaged when he graduated and were married the following year when he was attending a medical field service school at an Army Hospital in Denver. I returned to Miami when he was shipped to the Philippines.” John Soule served four years as a medical field and laboratory officer in Manila and at Kure-Hiroshima, Japan. He received his M.A. in 1948 and his Ph.D. in 1952 from USC and held a post-doctoral fellowship at California Institute of Technology under Dr. George Beadle in 1956-1958.

John and Dorothy were married 58 years. Says Dorothy, “We had a good run!”

buttonNEW INVESTIGATOR PRESENTATION AWARD
bar

At the Dublin Conference, Africa Gómez was named first recipient of the IBA New Investigator Presentation Award. Dr. Gómez has a post-doctoral position at the Department of Biological Sciences, University of Hull in the UK. Her paper, entitled AContribution of sibling speciation to marine biodiversity: preliminary results of Celleporella worldwide genetic differenciation using nuclear and mitochondrial genetic markers,@ was co-authored with David Lunt, Gary Carvalho, and Roger Hughes.

The New Investigator Presentation Award was established during the 1998 Panama conference to honor the memory of IBA founding member, Gilbert Larwood. It is presented to a student, or someone holding a postdoctoral position, who is a first-time presentor of a talk or poster at the conference. Five non-Council members of IBA constitute the selection committee.

To many members the name, IBA New Investigator Presentation Award, sounds awkward. A alternative might be the Larwood Award for New Investigator Presentations, or simply the Larwood Award. The Advisory Council is expected to consider this and other suggestions when they meet at the 2004 conference. Meanwhile, Dennis Gordon welcomes comments from IBA members on this issue.

buttonIB…….S: THE INTERNATIONAL BIOGEOGRAPHY SOCIETY
bar

The IBA Secretary has been made aware of an initiative to establish an International Biogeography Society - an international and interdisciplinary society contributing to the advancement of all studies of the geography of nature.

Given its inter-disciplinary and integrative nature, biogeography is now broadly recognized as a unifying field that provides a holistic understanding of the relationships between the earth and its biota. A group of biogeographers from around the world met in September 2000 and again in 2001 with the goal of establishing the International Biogeography Society –
The Society’s draft mission statement identifies the following objectives:

• Foster the development and application of biogeographical principles to studying
and conserving the world’s biota.
• Foster communication and collaboration across the various sub-fields and
traditions of biogeography.
• Promote the training and education of biogeographers.
• Increase the awareness and interest of the scientific community and the lay public in the
nature and value of the discipline.

An inaugural meeting of IBS is planned for January 4-8, 2003 (sessions from 5-7 January) at Mesquite, Nevada (easily accessible from Las Vegas. Planners anticipate a series of plenary sessions spanning five major themes across the spectrum of biogeography, plus contributed presentations from charter members. Additional information about the association and the inaugural meeting is available by email from biogeography@hotmail.com.

Rolf Schmidt has been collaborating with Phil Bock to produce a searchable web-based taxonomic database. He writes, “We will need to work out a way to make it as accurate and up to date as possible. We might need to find people who have extensive knowledge in various groups, and delegate some of the information gathering. This way all are covered, rather than mostly recent and Tertiary Cheilostomes as is the case now. We could send around a template of information categories that we would like to include for each taxon. Members can then comment and add to it. It would be best if the database was set up correctly right from the start to save on later hassles. Sounds like we can get a good basis from Species 2000. This may be ambitious, but in addition we would like to put up a complete bryozoan bibliographic database. And also extend what Phil has started with putting plates of crucial publications on the web, by including the text.”

buttonBULLETIN OF THE NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM TO BE REPLACED
bar

The Bulletin of the Natural History Museum is to have its last issue at the end of November this year. It will be replaced by a new Life Science Systematics journal, which will be called Systema. The new journal, to be published by Cambridge University Press, will maintain the output of present Zoology, Entomology and Botany Bulletins but will not be a 'revamped' Bulletin. A high-profile journal with an international Editorial Board, it will also include invited review papers and conceptual research papers in areas of special systematic significance, e.g. in phylogenetics, speciation and biogeography. There will be 4 issues per year with a total page output of 500-600 pages per year. It is expected that Systema will make a significant contribution to the systematic literature and will rapidly become a highly desirable journal for the publication of papers by the international systematic community.

Submission of manuscripts for Systema are welcome from now onwards.

One of the more important parts of the annual IBA Newsletter is the listing of recently published papers on bryozoans or that mention bryozoans. The Newsletter editor can compile listings from current biological and paleontological bibliographic sources, but none of these sources is complete. In fact, some of the omissions are amazing. PLEASE send reprints or reference lists of your publications to the editor to be sure that they will be included in the listing, and any time you encounter a publication that mentions bryozoans and that you think the editor should know about, please send an email note about it to the editor. It takes all of us to make the bibliography as complete as possible.
