Directory of Microbiologists Interested in Halophiles and Halophilic 

March 13, 1995

   This list will be posted every few months as a service to the 
community of microbiologists.  It is intended as an aid to 
communication, and any errors found are mine, the result from the fact
that I type with two fingers.  Corrections sent to me will be 
incorporated into the next list.  To be added to the list please 
send me an e-mail message containing the information included below.  

  I am currently looking into establishing a separate electronic 
discussion on halophiles and halophilic environments, and thinking 
about setting up a World Wide Web (WWW) site for this topic.
