This is off-topic, I guess, but it will of interest to many list members.

Roger Conant, author of the Peterson field guide to eastern reptiles and
amphibians, and probably one of the best-known herpetologists ever passed

This was on the PARC list:

Gary M. Stolz, Ph.D. of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service ask me to post
the following:
"I received a phone call early this morning from Skip Conant (Roger's son)
that Roger Conant had passed away this morning at about 12:30 am Albuquerque
time from his cancer peacefully in his sleep at age of 94. Roger's final
wishes for cremation and no funeral will be honored. There will be a
memorial service in Roger's honor at the University of New Mexico in
January. May we all take a moment and remember the incredible
accomplishments of one of our world's greatest herpetologists and how his
work inspired many of us as youth to pursue our careers and hobbies in
herpetology. May Roger rest in peace and live on in our memories forever.
