We regret to announce the passing of Dr. Joan G. Ehrenfeld on June 25 after a year long battle with acute leukemia. She was a world-renowned plant ecologist and professor at Rutgers University. The above image is Joan out in the field where she enjoyed getting into the dirt and the mud.
She was very involved in many aspects of the Highland Park community including the Environmental Commission. Her Obituary is here. Her website at Rutgers can be found here, which documents her scientific interests and passions.
Our condolences to her husband David Ehrenfeld, her children, and her extended family. We share the loss with her students, colleagues, and her many friends.
