25th ANNIVERSARY OF THE UFZ at the Library in Leipzig

On 12th December 1991, the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ)
was founded in Leipzig. A few months later, in April 1992, the official inauguration took
place in the presence of Karl Heinz Riesenhuber, the former Federal Minister of
Research and Technology.
We have compiled some interesting books and magazines from our inventory as well as a few of highly cited publications from UFZ-employees for you.
