About us

Algae researchers have joined in the Phycology Section of the DBG. The Section conducts scientific research on micro- and macroalgae and investigate - amongst other topics - physiological taxonomic, ecological, and molecular issues. Its main goals are to promote research on algae, to support young scientists, and to facilitate scientific discussions on algae, a fascinating group of organisms.

Every two years they organise a meeting with phycological topics. They also arrange contacts to specialists for media persons and publishes information on the “alga of the year”, in which a species is introduced to lay audiences. The Section is one of the founding members of the Federation of European Phycological Societies (FEPS). It offers an individual website.
