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

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.
The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....
An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
Nano-hologram paves way for integration of 3-D holography into everyday electronics
An Australian-Chinese research team has created the world's thinnest hologram, paving the way towards the integration of 3D holography into everyday...
