I am one of the many not-so-experienced who have followed this
discussion. My D80 was set to -0.7 and some pictures were
underexposed - surprise - surprise. I have now re-set this to 0 and
theexposure meter to "spot". I lock the exposure on the point of main
interest and then compose. Mostly, works for me.

Have a look at John Shaw's Field Guide to Nature Photography. He has an excellent chapter or two on metering. He presents it very simply, perfect for spot metering. Kind of a digital zone system so you know how to compensate.
