Subject: Alberto's question


Yours was probbly the kind of question that need a personal reply, rather
than one brodcast to the whole group, but I'll do so in public here
because I have one suggestion for the operation of the group and that is
that we drop the epithets "Dr" and "Professor".  I've always felt
uncomfortable being called doctor--half expecting someone to call on me to
do some risky medical procedure on an airplane.  So please.  "John" is
fine for me.

As to your question, I know little about Paleozoic corals and a little
about the Paleozoic of the Arctic Islands.  I will try to dig up a few
references and pass them to you on your e-net address.  I
would send them to you, but unfortunately we can no longer obtain free
copies of our own institute's publications.
