Profile of the institute

The Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology consists of the three departments Evolutionary Ecology, Evolutionary Genetics and Evolutionary Theory. The fourth department Microbial Population Biology is currently building up.

It is focused on basic research to unravel general evolutionary processes, such as ecological adaptations, benefits of sexual reproduction or evolution of cooperation. The scope of the work includes ecological, organismic, molecular and theoretical approaches.
Hinrich Schulenburg, Professor for Evolutionary Ecology and Genetics at the Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel (CAU), has been appointed as Max Planck Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön. The Max Planck Society honors Schulenburg's research as well as his intensive efforts in promoting evolutionary research in Schleswig-Holstein and thus the cooperation between CAU and MPI.
