Overview permenent exhibition

The exhibitions show that precise knowledge about species, that is, elements of life communities, allow well-founded prognoses about the cooperation in the ecosystems. The vital research of the Zoologisches Forschungsmuseum Alexander Koenig contributes to the maintenance of the functionality of our environment.

As the growth of human population is enmormous,  Humans are the fundamental cause of one of the three biggest mass extinctions the world has ever seen. Thus, involved in a race against time, museum scientists study biodiverstiy in nearly every region of the world, from the African and South American tropics to Antarctica but also in Europe and Germany.
