Algae have played a crucial role in shaping our planet’s atmosphere, as they transform CO2 into the oxygen we breathe. They contribute to building a sustainable future by aiding in the fight against climate change, providing new energy sources and essential resources for nutrition. NATHANAEL PRINGSHEIM (1823–1894), a pioneer of modern botany and a contemporary of Charles Darwin, revolutionized the understanding of biology. In his research on algae, Pringsheim revealed that sexuality was a fundamental principle even in organisms previously classified as “lower” life forms.

This book offers readers:

ANDREAS DEUTSCH, theoretical biologist and extraordinary professor at TUD Dresden University of Technology, is a distant relative of Nathanael Pringsheim.
