Ransom Myers obituary in Nature

In this week's issue of Nature (10 May, 2007), Daniel Pauly has written an obituary of Dr. Ransom A. Myers. It may be found at the following link in the News and Views section:

Pauly, D. Obituary: Ransom Aldrich Meyers (1952-2007) Chronicler of declining fish populations. Nature 447 (7141): 160.

This is a wonderful and fitting tribute to someone who published several articles in this esteemed journal, and led to mainstream talk about the status of depleted populations of marine species. For those who do not have a subscription or access to Nature, I hope it can be made available through other media.
