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!

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
