I would like to honor the passing of Leo Hickey, a renowned paleobotanist
and mentor. Leo created an enduring legacy; many of his students have
become excellent scientists and teachers, and his work is a pillar of
modern paleobotany. His teaching style inspired me and will live on through
my own teachings. I hope to be remembered as he is: a scientist dedicated
to knowledge and discovery; a true renaissance man. Thank you, Leo, for
everything you shared in the field, the classroom, and anywhere you
happened to be. <>

In memory,

Amelinda E Webb
