Phycology Section

of the German Botanical Society (Deutsche Botanische Gesellschaft, DBG, e.V.)

Welcome to the Phycologists

Our members conduct scientific research on micro- and macroalgae and investigate - amongst other topics - physiological taxonomic, ecological, and molecular issues. Our main goals are to promote research on algae, to support young scientists and to facilitate scientific discussions on algae, a fascinating group of organisms. About us.
