In memory of Prof. Berjak (South Africa)

It is with much sadness that we recently learned of the death of Prof. Patricia Berjak on the 21st January 2015. Prof. Berjak was a world-renowned seed scientist, with a particular interest and expertise in recalcitrant seed biology. She served as the President of the International Society for Seed Science from 2008 until 2011, and has presented many interesting research papers around the world. Indeed, Prof. Berjak made a remarkable contribution to botanical research, especially concerning our understanding of seed physiology and technology. She will be missed.
