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, which informs about recent advances in research as well as about latest developments in the Section and provides the link to its Twitter account.
