Note: This membership list was updated when the PhysarumPlus website was revised (August 28, 2014- July 6, 2015). All names for which we did not have up-to-date information (and were unable to establish Email contact) were deleted. We have retained the old list, which is available here. It should be noted that our membership list includes a number of scientists who, by interest, are members of the Physarum community but who are not - at this time - doing research on Physarum. Such individuals contribute many things to our community. If you have questions/concerns, please contact Webmaster.

Membership List

If you are not yet a member of the PhysarumPlus Community, but would like to be so listed, please send a mail message with the relevant information (name, address, statement of areas of interest, phone and/or FAX numbers, email address, website URL, and so forth) to Webmaster.
