Hello Peter!
Congratulations on this new site! It looks great, is well organized, and easy to navigate.

Thanks,

Many aspects are better than before, but I am not happy yet with how our profile pages are shown. The profile biography is duplicated in the sidebar and at the top of the page.

Which position is best, do you think?

Personally, I like to have the main biographical field displayed at the top of the page, where people can most easily see it.

But it could be argued that having all profile fields in the same position is good, while using the main page to display activities.

I will keep working on this as time permits.

Cheers, Peter

Thank you for your thoughtful letter introducing me to the Research Cooperative. I see that you have experience in archeology; I have experience from a field school and a couple of digs for private companies. Thank you once again for your hospitality and look forward to sharing resources.

Dear peter

I have completed my MSc in botany From Madras Christian College,Chennai.I have done a work on the ethnomedicinal Knowledge of Kattunaika Tribes of Wayanad in Kerala District.Now am working as a Junior Research Fellow in Jawaharlal Nehru Tropical Botanic Garden Research institute,Plaode. Am very much interested in Ethnobotanical works and want to do my best to the real heroes of the nature,and thereby for the betterment of my society.I would also like to do Phd in ethnobotany related field, in abroad.But for me financial is a problem but have enough willpower and determination.So i would like you to suggest me any possible ways to achieve my goal.

Thank you

Dear Peter,

Your observations are correct insofar as state of science publishing in India is concerned.It has been a long time since I left active research in biology and now more inclined to popularization/communication of science in India.These days more interested in developing modules for science popularization for masses. Besides I am serving in state govt as Chief Executive in Fisheries department and have been given the task of imparting technological knowledge to fish farmers under lab to land programme. . I would definitely like to explore this website from time to time despite my busy schedules.
