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- http://www.bbv-sbss.be/?cat=261
Professor D’hoore was a great soil scientist who will always be remembered as the author of the first comprehensive soil map of Africa – http://aow.kuleuven.be/outreach/
An extended In Memoriam will follow soon.
President, Soil Science Society of Belgium
