For more than four centuries botanists have been trying to comprehend the abundance encountered on all continents, habitats and climatic regions. However, their knowledge is still incomplete and constantly changing. The exhibition runs from April 27th 2012 to February 24th 2013 in Berlin. All exhibition texts are in German and English.
Flora writing is one of the basic assignments of biodiversity research. These annotated inventories of a region’s plant diversity allow us to capture `Flora’s treasures’, as well as to determine plants in the field. These `stock-taking’ activities along with constant monitoring become increasingly important, as global plant diversity is increasingly threatened by human interference.
Learn about functions and work flow of Floras and meet the people behind important projects. Interactive stations as well as bibliophilic treasures await you in this exhibition.
Enjoy a close-up view on `Flora’s treasures’ when strolling through the Botanic Garden. The Path of Floras matches the exhibition topic and leads you to 15 different regions of the world. Learn more about corresponding Floras and characteristic plants of the respective areas at the stations.
A richly illustrated catalogue will be published, including all German and English texts. Group tours can be arranged to individual times.Press tour and Preview: SAVE THE DATE

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
