How do algae have sex? Podcast about dating underwater

Susana Coelho and Daniel Liesner | Department of Algal Development and Evolution Max Planck Institute for Biology Tübingen

Why are algae not plants? How do they reproduce, and why can algae outsource their intercourse? In the second episode of the new German podcast series "Auf den Grund gegangen", Susana Coelho and Daniel Liesner from the Max Planck Institute for Biology in Tübingen explain the astonishing reproduction mechanisms of brown algae. The new format of the Max Planck Campus Tübingen brings researchers from the lab to the microphone and and explores scientific topics in-depth. The podcast is produced by the press officers Sophia Jahns and Viola Brand.
