Chris J. Lomer (1957-2001) - entomologist, insect pathologist and 1st President of the International Society for Pest Information

Chris Lomer was born in 1957 in the U.K. and was active in research on insect pest management, mainly in developing countries, with a focus on insect pathology. He worked in the Seychelles, Indonesia and with IITA in Benin. At IITA he was in charge of the LUBILOSA Programme (biological control of grasshoppers and locusts). In 2000 he joined Jørgen Eilenberg at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. During the founding meeting of the International Society for Pest Information in January 2001 he was elected President. In October 2001, he unexpectedly and tragically died at a young age during a trip to Australia.
