Volume 17 Issue 1 Pages 1 - 58 (April 2000)

Note from the Editor
Previous | Contents | Next

For this issue I received so many manuscripts and additional information, on books, congress, call for information: etc., that I had to shorten the section on new publications to those which are either 'grey' or were sent to me by the authors. Additionally, I had to place some of these notices on the empty spaces on the last pages of articles, as this was the only possibility of not exceeding the critical page number of 56 pages, above which the postage becomes extremely expensive.

Thanks go to the few people who contributed to the printing and postage costs of issues 17/1 and 17/2. I had hoped that all that can afford it would contribute again this year but. unfortunately, many did not, although the leaflet to use a VISA-credit card was enclosed with the last issue.

Please send me any change of address in advance as, from every issue, 2-3 envelopes come back after weeks, or even months, due to changed addresses. This is a waste of money and to track the people costs a lot of time!

The printing of this issue was sponsored by 'Pro Lutra', an NGO from Switzerland which is presently preparing a reintroduction programme for Lutra lutra in Switzerland.

I would like to ask all of you to contribute photos for the title pages or coming issues as I have used all the photos I had.

Kevin Roche (Trebon) functions again as a reader for those contributions which have not been reviewed by at least one native speaker. Alvaro Soutullo (Uruguay) translated some of the abstracts into Spanish. I have to thank the 'Otter Bulletin Team' - Barbara Gutleb-Rainer (Oosterbeek), Hans van den Berg (Wageningen), Els Hoogsteede-Veens and Erwin Hellegering (GRAF1SCH SERVICE CENTRUM VAN GILS, Wageningen) - for their continuing help. Tobias and Helena once again did all the work with the envelopes.
