About this book

Language: German

The German Senckenberg Gesellschaft für Naturforschung has been collecting specimens for centuries to illuminate the secrets the natural world. Here scientists themselves tell what, how and why they collect, providing a closer look at their activities. The collections total more than 38 million objects of inanimate and animate nature which serve as the basis for a variety of research studies. They allow, for example, well-founded conclusions on the evolution of our planet. But also the biodiversity of our world can be seen and explored in the collections – biodiversity is the key word at Senckenberg for a reason. When looking behind the scenes, special treasures can be discovered that have so far been hidden from the public. Many of them have their own exciting story. Some are told in this book for the first time.

Summary in German:
Bei der Senckenberg Gesellschaft für Naturforschung wird seit Jahrhunderten gesammelt, um den Geheimnissen der Natur auf die Spur zu kommen. Was, wie und warum Wissenschaftler sammeln, erzählen sie zum Teil selbst und gewähren dabei Einblicke in ihre Tätigkeit. Die Sammlungen mit insgesamt mehr als 38 Millionen Objekten der unbelebten und der belebten Natur dienen als Grundlage für vielfältige Forschungsarbeiten. Sie erlauben zum Beispiel fundierte Rückschlüsse auf die Entwicklungsgeschichte unserer Erde. Aber auch die Artenvielfalt der Welt lässt sich an den Sammlungsbeständen ablesen und erforschen – nicht umsonst ist Biodiversität das Schlüsselwort bei Senckenberg. Beim Blick hinter die Kulissen lassen sich besondere Schätze entdecken, die der Öffentlichkeit bislang verborgen blieben. Viele davon haben ihre eigene spannende Geschichte. Einige werden in diesem Buch zum ersten Mal erzählt.
