Wetlands Center is New Partner in Central Southwest Gulf Coast Node: The U. S. Geological Survey's National Wetlands Research Center (NWRC), Lafayette, LA, has joined the Houston Advanced Research Center as a partner in the National Biological Information Infrastructure's (NBII) Central Southwest Gulf Coast Information Node. NWRC's goal is to expand the geographic coverage of the node and increase stakeholders. The center has three decades of experience building networks and collaboration along the Gulf Coast, up the Mississippi River Lower Valley, and in Texas and Arkansas. To begin its NBII work, the wetlands center is building a digital library of information and data sites, developing a legal database, attending conferences and giving presentations to build awareness of NBII, and planning a stakeholder meeting scheduled for November 30 in Lafayette. Gaye S. Farris, Information Branch Chief, is the wetlands center's principal investigator for the node. (Gaye Farris, Lafayette, LA, 337-266-8550)
