      It is time for another issue of ARGIA and I would like to solicit any
      articles, notes, or other information that you think the readers might
      enjoy. You can send content to me anytime, but I would like your
      submissions by no later than May 27th to be considered for this issue.
      If you are not familiar with ARGIA, it is the News Journal for the
      Dragonfly Society of the Americas. Information about both the journal
      and the society can be found on OdonataCentral at
      http://www.odonatacentral.org/index.php/PageAction.get/name/DSAHomePage and
      I have pasted the Instructions to Authors below.

      Thanks in advance for your contributions,
      John

      *Instructions to Authors for ARGIA Submissions*



      Digital submissions of all materials (via e-mail or CD) are vastly
      preferred to hardcopy. If digital submissions are not possible, contact
      the Editor before sending anything. All material must be sent directly
      to the Editor, John C. Abbott <jcabbott@...>.



      All articles and notes are preferably submitted in Word or Rich Text
      Format, without any figures or tables, or their captions, embedded. Only
      minimal formatting to facilitate review is needed?single column with
      paragraph returns and bold/italic type where necessary. Include captions
      for all figures and tables in a separate document.



      Include a title, author name(s), and contact information (especially
      email) with a line between each. The article or note should follow this
      information. Paragraphs should be separated by a line and the first
      line should not be indented. Where possible always refer to the
      scientific name of a species followed by its official common name in
      parentheses.



      Submit figures individually as separate files, named so that each can be
      easily identified and matched with its caption. Requirements vary
      depending on the type of graphic.



      Photographs and other complex (continuous tone) raster graphics should
      be submitted as TIFF (preferred) or JPEG files with a minimum of 300 ppi
      at the intended print size. If unsure about the final print size, keep
      in mind that over-sized graphics can be scaled down without loss of
      quality, but they cannot be scaled up without loss of quality. The
      printable area of a page of Argia or BAO is 6.5 × 9.0 inches, so no
      graphics will exceed these dimensions. Do not add any graphic features
      such as text, arrows, circles, etc. to photographs. If these are
      necessary, include a note to the Editor with the figure?s caption,
      describing what is needed. The editorial staff will crop, scale, sample,
      and enhance photographs as deemed necessary and will add graphics
      requested by the author.



      Charts, graphs, diagrams, and other vector graphics (e.g. computer-drawn
      maps) are best submitted in Illustrator format or EPS. If this is not
      possible, then submit as raster graphics (PNG or TIFF) with a minimum of
      600 ppi at the intended print size. You may be asked to provide the raw
      data for charts and graphs if submitted graphics are deemed to be
      unsatisfactory. When charts and graphs are generated in Excel, please
      submit the Excel document with each chart or graph on a separate sheet
      and each sheet named appropriately (e.g. ?Fig. 1?, ?Fig. 2?, etc.)



      Tables may be submitted as Word documents or Excel spreadsheets. If
      Excel is used, place each table on a separate sheet and name each sheet
      appropriately (e.g. ?Table 1?, ?Table 2?, etc.)
