Halophile Interest Directory

I sent this out last week, but believe it never made it to this newsgroup.


Directory of Microbiologists Interested in Halophiles and Halophilic 

December 15, 1994

   This list will be posted approximately once every two months as a service 
to the community of microbiologists.  It is intended as an aid to 
communication, and any errors found here probably 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.  

  At such time that the list becomes large enough I will seek to establish a 
separate electronic discussion on halophiles and halophilic environments.
