    Hi CVER Colleagues:<br>
    <br>
    I received the following request from Prof Roger Morris in NZ
    (<a class="moz-txt-link-abbreviated" href="mailto:roger.morris@morvet.co.nz">roger.morris@morvet.co.nz</a>). If you are interested, please contact
    him directly.<br>
    (I can assure you that NZ is very nice at this time of year :-) )<br>
    <br>
    Cheers<br>
    Ian<br>
