Ernst-Detlef Schulze receives Ernst Haeckel Prize of the European Ecological Federation

21.08.2013
For his outstanding contribution to the European ecological research Ernst-Detlef Schulze is rewarded with the Ernst Haeckel Prize of the European Ecological Federation. The award ceremony will be on Wednesday, August 21, 2013 at the International Congress of Ecology in London.
The award
The European Ecological Federation (EEF), the umbrella organization of the ecological societies of Europe announced the Ernst Haeckel Prize for the first time in 2011 to reward senior ecologists for their scientific achievements. Together with the British Ecological Society which is celebrating its centenary this year, the EEF and the International Association for Ecology organize the International Congress of Ecology in London from August 18 to 23, 2013.
The laureate
Professor Ernst-Detlef Schulze is the founding director of the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, who, after his official retirement in 2009, continues his research activities in various fields of ecological sciences and nature protection.

Schulze, born in 1941, studied forestry and biology and in 1997 he exchanged his professorship at the University of Bayreuth with the directorship at the newly founded MPI for Biogeochemistry in Jena. His scientific career began with investigating the linkages between plant functions and the cycling of carbon, water and nitrogen. He subsequently enlarged his scientific fields to the observation of large scale ecosystems and the significance of biodiversity in the global element cycles. Schulze has made seminal contributions to the identification and quantification of carbon sources and sinks with the aim to better understand the causes of the anthropogenic greenhouse effect.

Currently Professor Schulze is engaged in studying ecophysiological processes in trees, exploring continental transects in Australia and Siberia as well as studying soil processes. Being a forester himself Ernst-Detlef Schulze feels very strongly about the linkages between nature and species conservation and the economic aspects of forest management.

Over the past decades Ernst-Detlef Schulze received numerous awards and recognitions such as the Bavarian State Medal in Silver (1990), the Max Planck Research Prize (1992), the Bullard Prize of the Harward University (1997), the Vernadsky Medal of the European Geosciences Union (2004), the Deutsche Umweltpreis (2008), and the appointment as leading scientist at the Siberian Federal University of Krasnoyarsk connected with a fellowship of the Russian government (2010). The Ernst Haeckel Prize is now rewarding the ‘senior ecologist’ for his contributions to the European ecological science - congratulations!

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
