Elizabeth and I were often critics together at the Conway School of landscape Design. I loved her humor, knowledge and wonderful sense of fairness. She was a great person and a ton of fun to be around.

I am sad and shocked to see this news. I first met Elizabeth through her ecological work and papers with Fakhri Bazzaz. Then i became a Bazzaz postdoc in 2002 and began doing plant ecological research at Harvard Forest. Elizabeth was so kind, so helpful and so smart. She was an academic mentor to me. I am so sorry for this loss. I was just now searching for her email to check with her about some data she collected in 1993.... What an ecological and conservation hero, and an amazing humanitarian.

I am stunned and devastated by this news. What happened?!
Elizabeth and I have known each other since our high school days at Dana Hall, where we were best friends. Unlike many high school friends, we had not drifted apart from each other but kept in touch at least once a year despite our geographic distance. I live in Colorado. Finally, in 2015 and 2016, my husband and I were able to visit Elizabeth in Amherst and the intervening years seemed to melt away. What a wonderful time we had catching up and spending time exploring the outdoors. We thoroughly enjoyed exchanging insights on our relationship with the natural world. One that we had both plunged into with both feet, she as a scientist and illustrator and I as a wildlife veterinarian. Elizabeth took us to some of her favourite natural places near her home and we spent hours enjoying the flora and fauna and our time together. The natural world has been deprived of a staunch advocate at such a young age, and I have lost a wonderful friend just as we were rekindling our friendship.

I was so incredibly saddened to get this news of Elizabeth. I first met her in South Africa in 1996 when she was on a Harvard Scholarship at the University of Cape Town and I was doing Botany Honours. We kept in contact ever since and it was only a couple of years ago that she visited us, staying overnight after a trip to Scotland. We had a lovely afternoon with her and her friend walking around Wakehurst Place and visiting the Millennium Seed Bank where I work. Elizabeth was an incredibly talented, thoughtful, hard-working, smart, kind and caring individual and the world is a much poorer place without her. Her influence will live on in all those whom she taught and touched and she will continue to inspire people for many years to come. She accomplished so much for environmental conservation. She will be sorely missed. We unfortunately will be unable to attend the celebration of her life, but will be there in spirit. With our most heartfelt condolences, Rosemary and John.
