Members of Research Unit 3000 and guests at balcony of iDiv in Leipzig


Our second Research Unit Meeting in Leipzig was held at the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv). In the workshop we focused on different perspectives from evolutionary biology, ecology, genomics and chemistry to discuss the evolutionary emergence and maintenance of chemical diversity in plants.

We had exciting and insightful talks by our invited guest speakers Omer Nevo (idiv), Susan Whitehead (Virginia Tech), Dietrich Ober (Christian-Albrechts-Universität, Kiel), Mike Speed (University of Liverpool), Pengjuan Zu (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich).

The Solanum dulcamara plants at the experimental station in Bad Lauchstädt are already visited by pollinators and flea beetles. We are looking forward to see what the team around Nicole van Dam and Redouan Adam Anaia will find out about the ecological consequences of chemodiversity in this fascinating plant species.
