On the occasion of the 35th anniversary of stable isotope research at the University of Bayreuth, a mini-symposium entitled "35 years of stable isotope research at the University of Bayreuth: Past, present and future of an elegant tool in biogeochemistry and beyond" took place on 9th of September at Thurnau Castle. The symposium marked the retirement of the founder and long-time director of the BayCEER Laboratory for Isotope Biogeochemistry, Prof. Dr. Gerhard Gebauer.
The 40-strong group of participants consisted of current and former students, current and former staff of the BayCEER Laboratory for Isotope Biogeochemistry, BayCEER members interested in isotope research and long-standing international cooperation partners of the isotope laboratory.
The programme of the symposium covered a wide range of topics: After the opening of the symposium by the deputy director of the BayCEER, Prof. Dr. Tillmann Lüders, the entire breadth of the Bayreuth Isotope Laboratory's research and results from many years of fruitful and friendly cooperation with many international colleagues were presented in nine scientific presentations and eight video contributions. The lecture event was concluded by Prof. Dr. Johanna Pausch (Agroecology) with an outlook into a promising future of Bayreuth isotope research.
The mini-symposium was followed by a two-day strategic workshop funded by the Bayreuth Centre of International Excellence "Alexander von Humboldt" entitled "Establishing a publicly accessible global online database on stable isotope abundance of mycoheterotrophic plants".
