The following message has been placed on the condolences register on behalf of DIVERSITAS:

The DIVERSITAS community would like to send a message of support and affection to the family of Carlo Heip.

Carlo served on the Scientific Committee of DIVERSITAS, an international programme for biodiversity sciences headquartered in Paris, France, for six years.

He was also heavily involved in GEO BON. All of us had the opportunity to interact with him on many occasions.

We appreciated his warm character, and indefectible commitment to the conservation of marine biodiversity. Everyone at DIVERSITAS will miss a good colleague and a friend.
