Exhibitions in the UFZ libraries in Leipzig and Halle


UFZ topic: ENVIRONEMNT and NATURE – our capital -
Accompanying this year's "Week of the Environment", which will take place from 7th - 8th June in Berlin with the participation of the UFZ, we have compiled some interesting books and magazines from our inventory as well as a few publications from UFZ-employees for you.

Week of the Environment: Nature - our capital


Flood - flowing danger!
We all remember the flood of 2013. Now mark the third anniversary of the flood disaster which affected us all in a variety of ways. The danger of flooding continues to threaten Germany, Europe and the world every year. With this in mind, I would like to present, in the form of an exhibition, a selection of literature on this topic from our collection at the UFZ.
Come by and take a look at what our colleagues and many other authors have written on the subject.
