Welcome to the Department of Systematics, Biodiversity and Evolution of Plants (with Herbarium)

Plant systematics is one of the oldest disciplines at the University of Göttingen and is being taught there since the founding of the university in 1735.

The major research topics of our Department are evolution, phylogeny and taxonomy of flowering plants. Our mission is to understand the patterns and processes of diversification of plants in space and time. The role of reproductive and developmental biology for plant evolution is an important focus of our research. We utilize a broad array of modern methods (molecular phylogenetics, DNA fingerprinting, next-generation sequencing), experimental approaches, as well as classical disciplines (field work, microscopy, karyology, herbarium work).

The Department is equipped with modern molecular, karyological and computer laboratories, an internationally renowned Herbarium of about 800.000 specimens (including over 12.000 types) and research collections of living plants (c. 2.000).
