In memory of Prof Oliver Rackham

European Landscape community suffered a big loss

13 Feb. 2015 | Thursday 12th February 2015 was a very sad day for the Mediterranean Landscape as it lost one of its greatest researchers and conservation activists, Prof Oliver Rackham OBE.

Prof Rackham (October 17, 1939 - February 12, 2015) was a Life Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge and an expert on woodlands and the British countryside. From his love for Greece he spent over 30 years studying the Mediterranean Landscape in an interdisciplinary manner, bringing together cultural, historical and ecological dimensions. He is author of "Making of the Cretan Landscape" and "Nature of Mediterranean Europe: An Ecological History" to name a few of his numerous works. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him and had the honour to work beside him. Our sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.

It is with deep regret that we report you of the passing of Prof Rackham. The CIVILSCAPE Marinescape Forum Piraeus 2015 will be dedicated to the memory of this great researcher and conservation activist. He did creative, passionated and groundbreaking work that has inspired many of us. In this way we try to pay tribute to his legacy and his encouraging example.
