Council of Heads of Australasian Herbaria
Born 1 May 1933, died, presumably in SA on 25 May 2018.
In his later life associated with birds and their behaviour, but he spent some of his earlier scientific life in botanical pursuits, firstly it would appear at the Wimmera Forest Nursery and then in the 1950s at the Northern Territory Herbarium in Alice Springs. Some 400 collections recorded for him in the Northern Territory Herbarium would suggest that he was there from 1953 to at least 1959.
By the 1970s he was in Adelaide and employed as a lecturer in the School of Applied Science, Torrens College of Advanced Education. He was involved with bird-banding wrote on birds as pollinators of Australian Plants.
In 2006 Neville received an "Unsung Hero of SA Science" award for his work on bird and plant interactions.
