The Section Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology in the German Society for Plant Sciences (DBG) supports all fields of biodiversity research and evolutionary biology, which ranges from molecular systematics (phylogenomics, population genomics) to analysis of structure and function of plants and to the diversification in space and time. We use field work and biological collections and we interact with all disciplines of plant sciences and evolutionary biology.
The Section organizes a workshop every other year in alternation with the conferences of the Botanik-Tagung (International Conference of the German Society for Plant Sciences).
Next Meeting of our Section: 23rd to 26th August 2023 at Giessen University, Germany
Archieves: former meetings of the Section Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology

At first the Section was founded nonofficially at Heidelberg, Germany, in 1971, named morphology, anatomy, and systematics. In September 1993 it got its first ststutes. Most of the members voted for the current name of "Biodiversity and Eevolutionary Biology" in 1998. The present statutes were decided at the the conference at Jena on 21st of September in 2000. In 2014 the section decided to introduce a fee for members at the members' assembly.
The Section set up its own statutes (German pdf).
