FNPS Mourns the Loss of Dr. Mark Whitten

April 15, 2019

We lost another great man on April 12th.  Mark was an amazing botanist at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville.  He was a kind and generous person who inspired many people to become scientists and researchers.  His sudden and unexpected passing is a shock.

The Society is honored that In Defense of Plants has dedicated their April 14th podcast “Saving Florida’s Native Plants” to the memory of Dr. Mark Whitten.
