How does my internal clock determine my daily rhythm? What is living in the deep sea? Can plants communicate? These and many other questions will be answered by scientists from disciplines as different as marine biology, ecology, chronobiology, and psychology in a lecture series entitled “Science in the Dinosaur Hall” at the Natural History Museum in Berlin. They will take us into foreign worlds, solve mysteries of nature, and vividly explain abstract phenomena.

The lecture series “Science in the Dinosaur Hall” is co-organized by Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, the Natural History Museum in Berlin, and the Schering Stiftung. Together, we invite you to eight evening lectures in the Dinosaur Hall, which will take you into the fascinating world of science. Following the lectures, you will have the opportunity for an exclusive visit to the museum until 10 p.m.
