Kevin Marshall is a troublesome act to keep on with. quantity thirteen of Advances in Microbial Ecology has been produced by means of a brand new editorial board, and we, the individuals of that board, are extremely joyful to find a way to pay tribute to Kevin's achievements. In his time as sequence Editor, the standard of the chapters submitted and the diversity of subject material lined have ensured an increasing and extra encouraged readership.

The fulfillment used to be reached not just via metic­ ulous consciousness to caliber and element but in addition via supplying a discussion board for the expression of perspectives, details, and effects that may stimulate dialogue. Advances in Microbial Ecology will proceed to supply the sort of concentration, even if, as a result of frequency of ebook, it should now not be possible to introduce a "reply" or "comment" part. even if we don't intentionally objective to supply a discussion board for controversy, we inspire hypothesis in accordance with sound medical arguments. moreover, we want to inspire authors to supply chapters for attention. long ago, the volumes have mostly comprised invited chapters.
