CIEEM was sad to learn that our long-standing Patron Professor Charles Gimingham passed away on 19 June 2018.

Professor Charles Gimingham OBE FRSE was a British applied botanist and a world authority on heathlands and heathers. He started his career as a research assistant at Imperial College London then became lecturer and then senior lecturer and finally professor of Botany at the University of Aberdeen. He held numerous honours including being a Fellow of the Royal Society, Fellow of the Institute of Biology, President of the British Ecological Society and President of the Heather Trust.

Professor Gimingham had been a Patron of CIEEM since 2000.

Our condolences go out to his family, friends and colleagues.
