Prof. Norman I. Platnick
(December 30, 1951 – April 8, 2020)
On behalf of The Asian Society of Arachnology, we would like to express our deepest sorrow for the loss of Norman Platnick, one of the greatest contemporary arachnologists.
His greatest contribution to our community, our society, and our field, his enormously influential pieces of work, and his tremendous inspiration for generations of young arachnologists will make him one of the most memorable arachnologists of all times.
On behalf of ASA, we would like to express our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.
President of the Asian Society of Arachnology
