We would be happy to have an Agenda item at our FNC meeting regarding Barcode of Life and have someone attend. We are aware that Bob Ward from CSIRO was involved in this program but Bob has since retired and we haven't heard from him for some time. Check out and - we have a Standard and it is important that this is linked with all the scientific work. Potentially we hope that a simple test can be achieved to enable people to know that what they are buying is what they are receiving.

If you or anyone is able to come along and give us a briefing that would be great - linkages are important. Let me know if you or anyone can be there. Cheers Roy

This committee is always on the look out for cheaper, efficient ways of testing species.

Next meeting is in Adelaide on 24 November
