The passing of Navjot S. Sodhi – a big loss to world’s conservation science

June 28th, 2011

On 12 June 2011, Professor Navjot S. Sodhi, my PhD supervisor, renowned tropical conservation biologist, passed away due to an aggressive form of lymphoma. He left many of us in deep sorrow, mourning for the loss of a person dear to our hearts, as well as a big loss to world’s conservation science. What he also left behind, is the wealth of research he committed to over the past 20 years. Perhaps an even more important legacy he left us is his passion in conservation biology, which will continue to inspire all of us. He dedicated a great deal of his effort in getting the conservation message to a broader audience. Showcasing this passion of him is a book written to be freely available for all, CONSERVATION BIOLOGY FOR ALL.

In commemorating Navjot’s contribution to tropical conservation biology, the Association for Tropical Biology & Conservation (ATBC) has set up the Navjot Sodhi Memorial Fund.
