Event type

Lecture by Annette Hohe for the lecture series "Gärten: Geschichte, Gestalt, Zukunft" in the summer semester 2021. The event will be streamed on Youtube.

From the middle of the 19th to the middle of the 20th century, the Benary garden centre was one of the large, globally active garden centres in Erfurt. At the same time, genetics was developing as a new and very soon central discipline of biology. As a plant breeder, Benary was necessarily concerned with the inheritance of characteristics of his varieties - to what extent did he have knowledge of the developments in genetics or was he even involved in them? Against the background of these questions, the company library of the Benary company, which has been transferred to the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt, was examined.

You can find the stream on our Youtube channel Uni Erfurt Live.

In the summer semester of 2021, the University of Erfurt and the University of Applied Sciences will once again jointly organise a public lecture series - due to Corona as an online event. This time the topic will be "Gärten: Geschichte, Gestalt, Zukunft" and is deliberately planned as a kind of supporting event for the BUGA 2021 in Erfurt.
