The international 'Fascination of Plants Day' is an initiative dedicated to share our enthusiasm about the beauty and importance of plants.

In 2019, special events will be organized on and around May 18 - not only here, but around the world, and under the umbrella of the European Plant Science Organization (EPSO).

More information about the 'Fascination of Plants Day' can be found here:


We will dedicate May 17 to discover and increase plant diversity on our institute green. Apart from exploring the species already growing there, we will craft insect hotels to attract pollinators, and add suitable plant species to the meadows.

When: May 17, 2019. 3 to 7 pm

Where: Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology, Max-Planck-Ring 5, 72076 Tübingen
