Derek Yalden has died
The Mammal Society is sorry to announce that Derek Yalden died on Tuesday 5th February. A memorial service is being planned for the summer and a full obituary will appear in the Summer 2013 issue of Mammal News.
Derek was President of The Mammal Society since 1997, having been a member since 1961, and an Honorary Reader in Zoology at the University of Manchester. Many will have known and worked with Derek over the years, including in the production of the 4th edition of our Mammals of the British Isles Handbook, among many other things.
We are respecting the privacy of the family in these difficult times, so if anyone would like to leave a message of condolence to be passed on, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
From all at The Mammal Society.
