In it for the long haul
This month marks the 25th anniversary of the first edition of this publication. We can be pleased, at least, by our longevity, but our celebrations have been muted by the death in April of Max Nicholson, one of the last century's great figures in nature conservation. Together with David Layton, another figure of distinction in public service and publishing, Max, then aged 73, conceived of a publication to educate and inform people in business and government on environmental matters - and it was thus, in 1978, that Environmental Data Services was born. We owe both of them a great debt.
