Abstract

The following information is the result of a survey carried out during December 1995 of all known researchers in New Zealand. The information is as complete as possible being based on responses received by 15 January 1996. A bibliography of relevant recent publications is given together with affiliation and address information for the active researchers. Information is arranged under the same topic headings as for the main body of the proceedings.
