Flora’s treasures. Recording the Green World. Exhibition in Berlin April 27 2012 to February 24 2013

10.04.2012
The special exhibition "Flora’s treasures. Recording the Green World." showcases our current state of knowledge concerning the overwhelming planet’s diversity in plants. Today, we know more than 320.000 species of vascular plants worldwide.

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.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...

Im Focus: On the way to a biological alternative

A bacterial enzyme enables reactions that open up alternatives to key industrial chemical processes

Im Focus: Laser-cooled ions contribute to better understanding of friction

Physics supports biology: Researchers from PTB have developed a model system to investigate friction phenomena with atomic precision

Friction: what you want from car brakes, otherwise rather a nuisance. In any case, it is useful to know as precisely as possible how friction phenomena arise –...
