May 18th is international Fascination of Plants Day (FoPD)

The seventh international “Fascination of Plants Day” (#plantday) will be launched by plant scientists across the world under the umbrella of the European Plant Science Organisation (EPSO), in which our DBG is an associated member. The goal of this activity is to get as many people as possible around the world fascinated by plants and enthused about the importance of plant science for agriculture and sustainable production of nutritious food, as well as for horticulture, forestry and the production of plant-based non-food products such as paper, timber, chemicals, energy and pharmaceuticals. Activities can happen from 1st March to 30th November 2024, with a peak around 18th May. In 2022 a total of 810 events in over 54 countries were held (for more details see power-point file as well as facts and figures 2024). If you would like to add your activity or event, please submit it to the organisers. The password to do so will be send to our members in the next DBG newsletter. The organisers also provide a PR toolbox with Logos, Posters and things like that to help you in promoting your event.

Öffentlicher Vortrag: Neue Techniken in der Pflanzenzüchtung

[Translate to Englisch:] Prof. Dr. Ulla Bonas. Foto: Christoph Rieken, Leopoldina

Pflanzengenetikerin Professorin Ulla Bonas (Uni Halle-Wittenberg), zugleich Vize-Präsidentin der Nationalen Akademie der Wissenschaften Leopoldina (Halle) und Wissenschaftliche Direktorin des Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskollegs (Greifswald), spricht am 16. September 2019, 19 Uhr, in einem öffentlichen Vortrag während unserer Botanikertagung über "Neue molekulare Techniken in der Pflanzenzüchtung" im Audimax der Universität Rostock auf dem Campus Ulmenstraße. Pflanzen werden seit etwa 12.000 Jahren gezüchtet und ständig genetisch verändert, um beispielsweise die Erträge und Stressresistenz zu erhöhen oder sie stabiler gegen Krankheiten zu machen. Neben spontan auftretenden Mutationen wurden in den letzten 150 Jahren Pflanzenlinien nach Mutagenese, also durch Bestrahlung oder chemische Agenzien auf neue und erwünschte Eigenschaften selektiert. Während durch solche DNA-Sequenzänderungen Mutationen im gesamten Genom entstehen ("Schrotschussprinzip"), hat die gerichtete Einführung spezifischer Mutationen durch neue molekulare Techniken die Pflanzenzüchtung im letzten Jahrzehnt revolutioniert. Was die so genannten "programmierbaren Genscheren" bewirken, darüber wird Professorin Bonas in ihrem Vortrag sprechen.

Invitation to upcoming Botanikertagung 2019

Flyer Botanikertagung 2019 for download (pdf)

Dear Colleagues,

the Botanikertagung is the largest and most well-known conference on plant sciences in the German speaking countries. It is the essential element of the plant science scene and community and is put forward by the DBG every other year. The conference in Rostock provides a wide scientific program reflecting the huge diversity of plant science related research topics in our scientific Society. The motto of the meeting 2019 ‘Plant life along gradients’ indicates that plants have to cope with a number of different external and internal gradients for survival. Topics of 8 plenary lectures and 21 symposia range from single to multicellular photosynthetic active organisms, from basic to applied science, and from molecular-biochemical to ecological research.

The Rostock scientific committee welcomes all plant scientists!

A document now lists sessions' topics and provides further details of the International Plant Science Conference Botanikertagung in Rostock, Germany, 2019.

Invitation: Botanikertagung 2017

Dear Colleagues,

the Botanikertagung is an International Conference on Plant Sciences that will next be held in Kiel, Germany, 2017 from September 17 to 21. It is organized by the Christian-Albrechts-University and our German Society for Plant Sciences (Deutsche Botanische Gesellschaft, DBG). For the first time Danish colleagues participate in the organization of the conference. Multiple stimuli brought up by a Scandinavien perspective are expected.
The Botanikertagung is a biannual conference that brings together world leading experts and early-career scientists from a wide range of disciplines in plant biology. In 2017, the Botanikertagung addresses various facets of plant research under the title “Plant Research in a Changing World”.
The conference comprises four days of exciting presentations, including keynote lectures, poster sessions and workshops. An evening lecture open to the public will address the suitability of our crop plants for feeding the increasing world population.
It is a great opportunity for the DBG to host this conference. We wish to promote the exchange of knowledge and expertise in the fields of biodiversity and ecosystems, interactions with the environment, evolution, cell biology, organization and expression of genomes, photosynthesis, algae, growth and development as well as biotechnology. Moreover, research on crop plants will be presented from a diachronic perspective. Take your chance to be part of this large plant science conference and to share your ideas and enjoy the fresh air at the seaside with us.

We hope to see you in Kiel!

Chair of the conference
