Danke schön

The Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin says “Danke schön” – “Thank you”


Herbarium and the biodiversity informatics staff at the Botanischer Garten und Botanisches Museum Berlin

Thanks a lot to the Notes from Nature Community for completing the Amaranthaceae expedition. Your transcriptions are very helpful for the Caryophyllales (an order of flowering plants that includes the cacti, carnations, amaranths, etc.) research group at the Berlin Botanical Museum. We’ll include the results into information systems to make them available for further research queries. You classified 444 specimens which is great! Many labels on these specimens were handwritten and not easy to read. All the more we appreciate your enthusiasm and endurance!


The results of the Amaranthaceae Expedition help our team to track back distribution patterns of this plant family and are important for biogeographical analyses and dynamic monographs of the group.

Dr. Sabine von Mering, Coordinator, Caryophyllales Research Group


Kind regards,

Agnes Kirchoff, Botanischer Garten und Botanisches Museum Berlin
