    “Max lived in Singapore, studied at NUS and worked at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. He has a lot of ‘fans’ here in Singapore and in SE Asia at large who were saddened by his passing.

    Max was a spectacularly irreverent character but recognized as one of the top botanists in SE Asia; a contrast of a cheerfully abrasive personality but with a deep and genuine concern for plants, conservation and collections-based science. His collection effort over his career included tens of thousands of herbarium specimens.

    His passing has been widely felt.”

    – Edward Webb
