Georges Tohme, president of the Lebanese National Council for Scientific Research since 1993, is a dedicated champion of the flora and fauna of Lebanon. Frequently working with his wife, Henriette A. Sabbagh, he has written about Lebanese mammals, birds, and flowers--and about the Lebanese University, where he taught for many years and served as head of three departments. From 1977 to 1980 he was dean of the Faculty of Science, and in 1980-88, he was president of the University. For many years he has been devoted to the preservation of the "wonderful and irreplaceable diversity" of Lebanese flora and fauna.
