Change of Editor for Nature in Singapore and Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum Ebooks with effect 10 August 2020
The Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum would like to thank Associate Professor Hugh Tan Tiang Wah for his long tenure as founding Editor of Nature in Singapore and the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum Ebook series since 2008. As Editor, Hugh oversaw the publication of 370 NiS articles on flora and fauna of Singapore and more than 30 ebooks on various biodiversity-related topics. He has made the publications important and contributed greatly to the biodiversity landscape for Singapore. But he has been doing this a long time and will be stepping down with effect from 10 August 2020 to focus on other things close to his heart. His editorial responsibilities in the museum will be taken up by Dr Ng Ting Hui, Museum Officer (Lecturer) and Curator of Freshwater Molluscs and Worms.
