Sektionsgeschichte

Sorry, in German only

Die Sektion Pflanzenphysiologie und Molekularbiologie wurde 1978 parallel zur europäischen Föderation der Pflanzenphysiologen (Federation of European Societies of Plant Physiology, FESPP) gegründet. Zunächst noch unter anderem Namen. Prof. Dr. Hartmut Lichtenthaler hat mit den bisherigen Vorsitzenden gesprochen, zusammengestellt, welche Hürden sie nahmen und welche Neuerungen sie einführten und hat so die Geschichte der Sektion zusammengetragen. Er berichtet von den Gründungsvätern, der Wiedervereinigung mit den Kollegen aus der ehemaligen DDR und der Etablierung der berühmten Tagung in Dabringhausen.
