With sadness, we announce the passing of Dr. Travis Bean. Dr. Bean worked for UC Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC ANR) as an Assistant Cooperative Extension Specialist focusing on weed science. According to a statement from UC ANR, Dr. Bean passed away during the last week of May 2020.
Dr. Bean joined the PlantRight Steering, Plant List, and PRE Advisory Committees after Dr. Joseph DiTomaso retired in 2017 to provide the academic plant science perspective on these committees.
Our condolences go out to Dr. Bean’s family, friends, and colleagues. We wish them comfort in this time of grief. Dr. Bean was a valued collaborator with PlantRight, and we greatly appreciate all of his contributions to our work. He will be missed.
