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.

Section Meeting 2015

In the course of the Botanikertagung „From Molecules to the Field“ in Freising, Germany, the section will convene for the lecture of keynote speaker Dr. Pamela Soltis (University of Florida, Monday, 8 31st 2015, 11:15 a.m.), sessions “Biodiversity” (chair: Christian Wirth, Monday, 8 31st 2015, 2:30 a.m.) and “Systematics” (chair: Susanne Renner, Wednesday, 9 2nd 2015, 6:15 p.m.) and a workshop/symposium entitled “Chromosomal and biogeographic evolutionary patterns in plants” (Monday, 8 31st 2015, 8:00 p.m.). We hope that the enticing area and diverse meeting contents will encourage many systematists to join the Botanikertagung.

Professor Olaf Bininda-Emonds and Professor Dirk Albach from the departments „Biodiversität und Evolution der Pflanzen“ und „Systematik und Evolutionsbiologie“ of Oldenburg University, Germany invited to "The time for phylogenetics - inferring and applying timetrees in evolutionary biology". The symposium took place at Oldenburg from 22nd to 24th November 2013 ( [5]) and focused on:

  • New advances in molecular clocks (Prof. Dr. Susanne Renner, Munich)
  • Fossil dating and calibrations (Prof. Mike Benton, Bristol)
  • Bayesian estimation of species divergence times (Dr. Mario dos Reis, London)
  • A unified framework for inferring speciation and extinction rates from phylogenies with fossils (Dr. Tanja Stadler, Zurich)
  • Timetrees and the historical biogeography of the “Rand Flora” (Dr. Isabel San Martin, Madrid)
  • Co-evolution and timetrees (Dr. Chuck Bell, New Orleans)

The DBG supported the attendance of jung scientists.
