I have the sad task of announcing that Dr. George Estabrook, age 69, a professor in the Dept. of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology here at University of Michigan (http://www.lsa.umich.edu/eeb/directory/faculty/gfe/) passed away last Thursday, 24 November.

He was widely known for work in computational aspects of ecology and systematics (see his recently released text - http://www.cambridge.org/gb/knowledge/isbn/item6451855/?site_locale=en_GB) and was a leader in early collection databasing, creating the first database of vascular plant types specimens at the UM Herbarium in the 1970s.

A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, 29 November, at 4 pm at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, in Ann Arbor, MI.
