Subject: best papers in agroecology


Please take a look at the top list which comes pretty much
verbatum from your suggestions
and the appended list, which comes from our working group, and see
if there is a foundational paper which is left out of the two lists.
If so, send us the reference at dletour@cats.ucsc.edu.
We are collecting additional references via "surface and air" mail.
A COMPLETED AND CORRECTED list will be mailed to you via the net by
April 1.  Thanks again for your enthusiastic responses and input.
