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
