It is with great sadness that I must report that Peter Sneath, one of the founders of numerical taxonomy and the Classification Society died on Friday September 9th.  The funeral will be on October 5th.

 

There is a brief announcement by the University of Leicester here:

(it notes that further details will be provided later)

 

Another notice is available here:
