Events

Our outreach events provide a platform that encourages exchange between science and the public. Below you will find a list of upcoming and past events.

21st April, 2024 - Guided tour in the Botanical Garden Munich-Nymphenburg

Crops and microbes - smallest friends and foes

Countless microorganisms, such as bacteria and fungi, can be found in and around plants. They may have a major influence - both positive and negative - on plant health. Using the example of various crops in the Botanical Garden, we learn more about the diverse interactions.

The tour is in German.

4th November to 13th December, 2023 - Microphotography Exhibition "Friends & Foes" in the Botanical Garden Munich-Nymphenburg

Microorganisms are critical to the health of plants and thus to our food security. However, things are not always on a friendly basis. Quite contrary: on the one hand, plants can form so-called symbiotic communities with microscopic organisms that improve the plant's nutrient supply and protect it from pests; on the other hand, pathogenic microorganisms can cause massive damage to plants and turn out to be deadly enemies.

The exhibition "Friends & Foes - Interaktionen zwischen Mikroben und Pflanzen" presents both sides of plant-microbe interactions in a fascinating way. Researchers from TRR356 use their photographs to provide a microscopic view of biological processes that are normally hidden from the human eye. What may initially look like abstract art due to bizarre shapes, structures and garish colors, shows cellular changes, for example through defense mechanisms of plants or infection strategies of microorganisms, in large format. The exhibition explains in an understandable way for adults and children what is hidden behind the detailed images.
