  1. My condolences to Alan’s family. I was sad to learn of his too-early death. He made an outstanding contribution to modern marine phycology, particularly in Australian waters. As a (non-algal) colleague of his in Sydney, I admired his expertise in diving and underwater photography, but above all his passion for algae. His published research work and the many preserved specimens he collected are permanent reminders of what he achieved.

  2. Condolences indeed to Alan’s family and friends. Splendid tributes from his family and good to celebrate his achievements in science. With memories of his time at the Herbarium in Sydney.

  3. My condolences to the Millar family. Thankyou for the wonderful reflections of his life. I’m grateful to have known Alan and to have had the catch-ups that we shared. Most sincerely, Peter Harvie. Coogee SLSC

  4. I was so saddened to hear of Alan’s passing. We shared many great times together at ASPAB conferences, in particular. He will be remembered by me in equal parts for his amazing knowledge of, and passion for, seaweeds; his love of life and a good time (especially if it included a glass of red or two…), his generosity of spirit and in sharing his passion and knowledge, and his love and pride in his family. He will be missed, but his incredible phycological legacy will last, and clearly his importance to his family, friends and colleagues will not be forgotten. My condolences to his family and all that share in the loss.

  5. Devastated and sad at the loss of my cousin Al.

    I have fond memories of helping him collect algae from a variety of coastal locations in south-east Queensland, followed by the painstaking sorting and preserving of specimens on a table at our (Sue and myself) Upper Brookfield home. He had an extraordinary knowledge of, and passion for, these and other aquatic organisms.

  6. Condolences to all of Alan’s family & friends.

    He was admired, and will be remembered fro many things – one that stood out particularly to me, was his moral courage.

    His death is a great loss to us.
