The New Phytologist Trust was deeply saddened to learn of the death of former Editor of New Phytologist and Treasurer Professor Phillip Syrett.

Professor Syrett served as an Editor of New Phytologist from 1970 until 1990 and as an Advisor to the Trust from 1990 until 1998, and during this latter period he served as Treasurer to the Trust. Professor Syrett made an outstanding contribution to the work of the New Phytologist Trust during his 28-year association with the organisation and our sincerest sympathies are extended to his family and friends.
