 I've enjoyed observing the diversity of interests of the growing
membership of this list.  I am a philosopher and historian of biology,
with strong interests in three areas of biology -- development, evolu-
tion, and heredity (genetics) -- and their interactions.  I have done
some work on the analysis of the concepts employed in evolutionary
biology and genetics, the institutional and experimental factors invol-
ved in the transition from Mendelian to molecular genetics, the history
of Darwinism, and the treatment of theories and phenomena of heredity
among French biologists.  Partly because of a heavy workload (I direct
Virginia Tech's Center for the Study of Science in Society), I'm likely
to be more of an observer than a contributor to this list.  But I want
to join the chorus of thanks to Bob O'Hara for getting it going.  Thanks
Bob!              Dick Burian
