Dunedin-born Alan Mark joined the Botany Department at Otago University in 1955, after completing his MSc: ‘A study of the vegetation of the Maungatua Range’ (1954). In 1975 he was appointed Professor of Botany, and in 1978 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand. In December 2009, he was made a Knight of the New Zealand Order of Merit, the first such for services to conservation. Indeed, Mark is one of New Zealand’s foremost plant ecologists and conservationists.
