Vol.6 N0 2: June 2008-------- ISSN-0974-1550

Dear Readers,

 

Contents

Thanks for your readership. Once again we bring to you our quarterly ENVIS Newsletter on “Microorganisms and Environment Management”.

Along with research articles, reports and abstracts of recent publications, this issue also highlights the significance of ‘World Environment Day 2008’.

On 5th June 2008, the fraternity at the Guindy Campus, University of Madras came together to show their commitment to save the earth - planet. They pledged to “Kick the Habit” (the ‘carbon’ habit) and organised a campus cleaning drive. Saplings were planted in the campus and the commitment to be a part of the solution towards a carbon-neutral existence was reinforced.

ENVIS newsletter has become a popular source of information on environment management and related issues. We appreciate your constructive feedback to improve our activities and services.
