Mike Black

It is with great sadness that I am relaying to you that Mike Black passed away on January 5th, having lived with cancer for five years, well controlled by immunotherapy until his very last weeks. He was a vital force in the founding of our Society and the successful launching of our journal, Seed Science Research. An obituary highlighting his many achievements will follow.

    May Almighty rest the departed soul in peace
