It is my sad task to inform of the death of  Serge Aubert, Professeur ŕ l’Université Joseph Fourier de Grenoble et Directeur du Jardin Botanique Alpin du Lautaret , Station alpine Joseh Fourier.
Prof. Aubert  died suddenly on 19th February. He was only 48 years old. 
We are grateful to botanist Rolland Douzet for this sad notification.


Serge was always most helpful and charming in any contact I had with him.


Many of you will have experienced  talks presented by Serge  and even more will have enjoyed the myriad of photos online  of plants from the botanic garden and his world travels.  ( sajf.ujf-grenoble.fr/ )

He will be sorely  missed.
