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

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
