Subject: Re: (urth) sf works featuring spectrum of alien bio-chemistries
From: Jason Ingram 

Jack Chalker's _Web World_ seemed to present an interesting treatment of 
this issue, from what I remember  (I read those books back in the early 
eighties, and would not recommend the author).  The premise is that some 
uber-aliens experimented with various life forms, seeding them in 
hexagonal bounded territories on a single planet.  He distinguishes 
carbon from non-carbon based life forms, and spends some time discussing 
how various species were situated to make it hard for any one to conquer 
neighboring species.

I don't recall much science, however.
