Publisher: Senckenberg Museum für Naturkunde
Abstract: Present, over 20 scientists work in the various research departments of the Senckenberg Museum of Natural History Görlitz. They use the extensive collections of over 6 million animals, plants and geological objects in order to answer questions of systematics, taxonomy, ecology, geology, molecular biology and many other scientific fields. Furthermore, the collections are immensely valuable as an archive for documenting the occurrence of organisms and geological objects as well as their development in space and time. The scientific results are presented and explained to the general public through the exhibitions. In these, visitors to the museum can learn about evolution, about the geological development of Upper Lusatia and the occurrence of rare plants and animals in the region, about the rain forest and savannah as tropical habitats as well as about soil as a living ecosystem. Collection and research take place in 6 departments or sections (general zoology, entomology, soil zoology, botany, geology and molecular biology). Further information can be obtained by a click on the department name in the top line (these pages are partly still in German). [Information of the supplier, translated and modified]
