Upcoming Member Assembly

The 25th international meeting of our Section had to be postponed due to the current situation.

During the next online meeting of DFG's SPP1991 priority programme Taxon-omics the Section will present one of the sessions. Additionally our Section plans an online member assembly during this meeting. Our Speaker, Prof. Dr. Dirk Albach, has the details.

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

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!

Karin Krupinska
Chair of the conference

Section Meeting 2016

23rd Symposium on Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology

The Symposium Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology of the same name Section of the DBG took place in Munich, Bavaria, from 8th to 11th September 2016 in the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, the Institute for Systematic Botany and Mycology, the Herbarium and the Botanical Garden. The more than 100 registerd participants listended to international keynote speakers from Danmark, Czech Republic, and USA, as well as from a variety of extra-university research institutions. Prof. Dirk Albach, Prof. Alexandra Müllner-Riehl and Prof. Jochen Heinrichs were confrimed unanimously to be the Section's speakers. In parallel the second Eduard Strasburger Workshop of the DBG took place, organized by Dr. Susann Wicke, Universität Münster, and Dr. Dörte Harpke, IPK Gatersleben. The workshop focussed on "Phylogenomics – The next generation of evolutionary botany". An excursion at the last day to the external facility of the Botanical Garden at Schachen in the Alps at an elevation of more than 1800 meters a.s.l. rounded off the meeting.

Invitation: Trinational Arabidopsis Meeting

The tenth Tri-National Arabidopsis Meeting unites all scientists working with the model plant in Vienna, Austria, from 14th to 16th September 2016. Early-bird registration and submission of oral abstracts end on June 15th. Posters can be submitted until August 1st. This is also the day of the last possible registration.
