The Young Scientists of the extinction group meet every quarter. Today for the first time as an SFB, no longer as a smaller research group. A whole series of new faces looked in and therefore the speaker of the SFB “disturbed” once for a warm welcome. At the top of the agenda was the election of the new representation and selection of speakers for the symposium in April. Besides the many plans, which they have already prepared for this moment for discussion, there was of course also a small glass of sparkling wine. Or a lot of little ones. To the Young Scientists!
