Prof. Jules D’Hoore deceased

It is with great regret that I have to communicate the sad news  that Professor Jules D’Hoore passed away on 10 September 2017. As you may remember he celebrated his 100th anniversary on May 7th 2017-

Professor D’hoore was a great soil scientist who will always be remembered as the author of the first comprehensive soil map of Africa –

An extended In Memoriam will follow soon.
