SUDDEN DEMISE OF PROF. JAMES L REVEAL: A LOSS TO TAXONOMY : 5 posts by 5 authors.
I am extremely sorry for sudden demise of Prof. James L. Reveal on 9th January, 2015 in Ithaca city, New York (USA). It is a great loss to Plant Taxonomy for ever. He will be remembered for his mastery in Plant Nomenclature, APG system, Polygonaceae family, US flora (part) and more than 500 research papers! He has several joint publications with LEADING & RENOWNED TAXONOMISTS LIKE—ROBERT THORNE, KANCHI N GANDHI, NESOM GUYSON, AND OTHERS. He was also remembered for his latest Angiosperm Clasiification published in PHYTONEURONE in 2012
I was also co-authored with this great Taxonomist for 3 publications in 2011, 2012 & 2013.
I REQUEST ALL BOTANISTS, ESPECIALLY PLANT TAXONOMISTS IN INDIA SHOULD MOURNE FOR HIS SOUL
May his soul rest in peace!
Really a very sad news, he was one of the very few names devoted to this significant field of Science, certainly a great loss to taxonomy and Botany..
We can pray for the departed soul remembering some of his publications I have gone through..!!
MAY THE DEPARTED SOUL REST IN PEACE !!
Sad to know the sudden demise of Prof. Reveal. He was a leading taxonomist of the world and have left a big void behind him in the community.
May his soul rest in the eternal peace.
