African Plant Project

Hi Girls, I hope everythink goes well! This message is especially for the Tunesian part of our group and all friends of travelling through Africa among us. I'm member of the Society of natural scientists "Senckenberg Gesellschaft für Naturforschung". Actually, we generated a database for african plants.

Everyone how has detailed photos from endemic/ native flowers and trees has the possibility to enlarge the database of this "Photo Guide". The homepage is as follow: .

The first snow ;)

Dear girls, it was really a dream: Last week I and my boyfriend spent the holiday in the Alpes.  All the days we were skiing. The conditions were perfect! But it was really the unique time that I have seen more than a dozen of snowflakes a day in this winter time. I think it was snowing in Tunisia more often than in Germany, wasn't it? It's crazy. Cheers. Susan 

PVRI conference

Dear all, two weeks ago I did participate in the PVRI conference in Bad Nauheim, a small health resort with mineral springs ;) Unfortunately not for relaxation, but for presentation of my Phd work. PVRI is a conference for scientists and physisians in the field of lung research. It was a superb venue to host such an array of high quality science and discussion. No sweat! Good luck to you!

Funny Lab Day

Dear all, this year of my thesis it seems to be so different compared to the others before. Today is my first funny lab day, althought I startet my work 10 days before! Untill now my colleague and me have to do such a lot of paper work - proposal, poster, pizza ... ;) It's so enoying if you don't have enough time for practical work.  I wish you all the best for the new year!
