Lampert, Wilfried

Abstract

The Annual Meeting of the German Limnological Society and the German members of SIL at Kiel in September 2001 had a sad opening as it became known that Hans-Joachim Elster had passed away on 10 September 2001 at the age of 93 years. We had lost the Great Old Man of German limnology and a serious advocate of the social responsibility of scientists.
