Dear Readers

      A vast biodiversity of marine microbial communities have enormous potential to degrade the wastes and pollutants as to have a healthy and vibrant environment for the welfare of the mankind. The need for the updated information and technologies are the major concern to the researchers and environmentalists. In order to have a national/global level network on environmental quality and management, the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India has set up an ENVIS Node on “Microorganisms and Environment Management” in the Department of Zoology, University of Madras in June 2002. Since then, it has been collecting data/information on microorganisms and their various activities in the environmental degradation and management. These data and the information collected by us on the assigned subject have been well collated and disseminated through the ENVIS Centre website: www.envismadrasuniv.org; www.dzumenvis.nic.in. Because of the Node’s voluminous data/information on microorganisms, effective dissemination, efficient query responses and active services to the user community, Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India has upgraded the EMCB-ENVIS Node as ENVIS Centre from February 2005.

After the up-gradation of the Node into a Centre, we bring out the issues of newsletter by every year with original research articles, reports, abstracts, forthcoming conferences/symposia and useful web addresses on the chosen theme to the benefit of readers, researchers, environmentalists etc. Readers are requested to give their suggestions and comments to improve our services and activities.
