We are very sad to inform you that our friend, collegue and member of the IENE Steering Committee, Miklós Puky, has unexpectedly passed away on Friday, March 20. He suffered a severe heart attack while being in the midst of his work with road ecology.
Miklós Puky was a highly influential Hungarian ecologist, working at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Centre for Ecological Research. He significantly helped to re-establish the IENE network in 2008 and is fondly remembered by many collegues for his special humour, charm, and his dedication to amphibians, roads and culture.
The funeral took place on the 9th of April at 14:30 (2:30 PM (CET)), in the Farkasréti Cemetery, Budapest.
Condolence letters can be sent either to the IENE secretariat (info(at)iene.info) to be translated and forwarded to Miklós family, or to Miklós work on the following address:
Hungarian Danube Research Station
Institute of Ecology and Botany of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences
2131 Göd Jávorka S. u. 14.
