Petr Černý certainly needs no introduction to the students and professional scientists who study granitic pegmatites. Černý's prolific career of research on these rocks has spanned over forty years, with important contributions in the areas of 1) the mineralogy, geochemistry and petrology of granitic pegmatites, 2) the petrology, geochemistry and petrogenesis of granitic rocks in relation to their fields of granitic pegmatites, 3) the distributions of granites and their pegmatite systems in time and space on continental and global scales, 4) methods of exploration for granitic pegmatites, 5) the crystal chemistry and physical properties of silicate, phosphate, and oxide minerals,...
