Dear Taxacomers,

We regret to announce that on August 31, 2012, Professor Cornelis 
Christiaan (Cees) Berg passed away. He was a former staff member of the 
Herbarium in Utrecht (the Netherlands), emeritus professor in Botany at 
the University of Bergen (Norway), and during the last 10 years he was 
guest researcher at the National Herbarium of the Netherlands. He was 
the specialist on Moraceae of all tropical regions, which resulted in 
many contributions to Flora projects in Africa and the Neotropics, and 
more recently, sponsored by the Foundation Flora Malesiana, in 2 
voluminous installments of Flora Malesiana.

On behalf of the Foundation Flora Malesiana and the Nationaal Herbarium 
of the Netherlands,
Marco Roos
