Dec 2012. Under Construction...

With the help of John Houghton (originator of the BIOTA) we are in the process of creating a web site, a virtual meeting place for all Biota enthusiasts throughout the world , a "Biota Club”, where contributions, ideas, personal car stories, questions, and perhaps most importantly resources and information can be shared.

We wish ideally to be able to include contributions from all the existing web sites, with the permission of and acknowledgment to each contributor.
