Foucault und die Affekte : Warum uns genealogische Kritiken affizieren

Dominik Herold
In my paper I draw the connection between Michel Foucault’s way of using genealogy as a criticalmethod and the role of affects. I argue that genealogy as critique works because of its affectivedimension insofar as it offers us an experience of thinking and acting differently once we have beenconfronted with the genealogical text. Foucauldian genealogies tell us stories about power relations andsubjectivations that take their starting point from a current political problem. I show that...

Art is Serious, Life is Serene

Complete list of fungal specimens from Benin, West Africa and locality data

Yalemwork Meswaet, Ralph Mangelsdorff, Nourou Yorou & Meike Piepenbring
Cercosporoid fungi (Mycosphaerellaceae, Mycosphaerellales, Ascomycota) are one of the largest and most diverse groups of hyphomycetes causing a wide range of diseases of economically important plants as well as of plants in the wild. Although more than 6000 species are known for this group, the documentation of this fungal group is far from complete. Especially in the tropics, the diversity of cercosporoid fungi is poorly known. The present study aims to identify and characterize cercosporoid...

Transculturalidad y borderología: El arte fronterizo de Guillermo Gómez-Peña

Andrea Gremels
pp. 76-89. The border between Mexico and the United States is the programmatic topic in the performance art of Guillermo Gómez-Peña, a chicano artist who emigrated to the United States at the age of 22. By calling himself “performancero migrante” y “borderólogo” the artist questions the border in a playful, subversive and polycentric way. His style is characterized by an experimental esthetics that combines expressions of pop culture with political claims and a didactic posture....

Wenn nicht jetzt, wann dann – wie die Energiewende gelingt

Andreas W. Bett, Berit Erlach, Ulrich Glotzbach, Justus Haucap, Hans-Martin Henning, Jürgen Kühling, Anja Lapac, Ellen Matthies, Karen Pittel, Mario Ragwitz, Jürgen Renn, Dirk Uwe Sauer, Christoph M. Schmidt, Indra Spiecker genannt Döhmann, Frithjof Staiß, Annika Seiler, Cyril Stephanos, Eberhard Umbach & Anke Weidlich
Die nächsten vier Jahre sind Countdown und Chance zugleich: Trifft die neue Bundesregierung nicht schnell wegweisende Entscheidungen, sind die deutschen Klimaziele für 2030 und 2045 kaum mehr zu erreichen. Begreift sie hingegen die neue Legislaturperiode als Möglichkeit für eine fundamentale und zukunftsweisende Neuausrichtung, kann sie der Klima- und Energiepolitik einen dringend benötigten Anschub geben, um unwiderrufliche Folgen durch den Klimawandel abzuwenden. Mit dem Impulspapier „Wenn nicht jetzt, wann dann – wie die Energiewende gelingt“ legt...

Import Price Dynamics in Major Advanced Economies and Heterogeneity in Exchange Rate Pass-Through

Stephane Dees, Matthias Burgert & Nicolas Parent
This paper aims at showing heterogeneity in the degree of exchange rate pass-through to import prices in major advanced economies at three different levels: 1) across destination markets; 2) across types of exporters (distinguishing developed economy from emerging economy exporters); and 3) over time. Based on monthly data over the period 1991–2007, the results show first that large destination markets exhibit the lowest degrees of pass-through. The degree of pass-through for goods imported from emerging...

All-trans retinoic acid induces synaptopodin-dependent metaplasticity in mouse dentate granule cells

Maximilian Lenz, Amelie Eichler, Pia Kruse, Julia Muellerleile, Thomas Deller, Peter Jedlicka & Andreas Vlachos
Previously we showed that the vitamin A metabolite all-trans retinoic acid (atRA) induces synaptic plasticity in acute brain slices prepared from the mouse and human neocortex (Lenz et al., 2021). Depending on the brain region studied, distinct effects of atRA on excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmission have been reported. Here, we used intraperitoneal injections of atRA (10 mg/kg) in adult C57BL/6J mice to study the effects of atRA on excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmission in the mouse...

Microsatellite data of Vincetoxicum hirundinaria offspring and their inferred mother plants from 13 populations in the South-Western Finnish Archipelago

Anne Muola, J. F. Scheepens, Liisa Laukkanen, Aino Kalske, Pia Mutikainen & Roosa Leimu
Fragmented landscapes may have implications for the genetic structure of populations and for the microevolution of plant species. In particular, landscape fragmentation and/or population isolation might affect the evolution of plant mating systems. Here, we study the consequences of landscape fragmentation on the genetic structure of populations of a perennial herb, Vincetoxicum hirundinaria with a mixed mating system. Our study area, the south-western Finnish archipelago, was formed after the glacial ice sheet started to retreat...

Data from: Reliable wolf-dog hybrid detection in Europe using a reduced SNP panel developed for non-invasively collected samples

Jenni Harmoinen, Alina Von Thaden, Jouni Aspi, Laura Kvist, Berardino Cocchiararo, Anne Jarausch, Andrea Gazzola, Teodora Sin, Hannes Lohi, Marjo Hytönen, Ilpo Kojola, Astrid Vik Stronen, Romolo Caniglia, Federica Mattucci, Marco Galaverni, Raquel Godinho, Aritz Ruiz-González, Ettore Randi, Violeta Muñoz-Fuentes & Carsten Nowak
Background: Understanding the processes that lead to hybridization of wolves and dogs is of scientific and management importance, particularly over large geographical scales, as wolves can disperse great distances. However, a method to efficiently detect hybrids in routine wolf monitoring is lacking. Microsatellites offer only limited resolution due to the low number of markers showing distinctive allele frequencies between wolves and dogs. Moreover, calibration across laboratories is time-consuming and costly. In this study, we selected...

Data from: Thriving in a hostile world: insights from the dietary strategy of two allopatric, closely-related tepui summit endemic amphibians

Philippe Kok, Tessa Broholm & Dietrich Mebs
To date, there has been no published investigation on the trophic diversity in any tepui summit vertebrate. In this paper we analysed the dietary composition of a tepui summit endemic toad, Oreophrynella quelchii from Roraima-tepui, and compared it with that of O. nigra, to examine to what extent diet differs between these two sister species across isolated, although neighbouring, tepui tops. The digestive tracts of a total of 197 toads were dissected: 111 from O....

If not now, then when – making the energy transition happen

Andreas W. Bett, Berit Erlach, Ulrich Glotzbach, Justus Haucap, Hans-Martin Henning, Jürgen Kühling, Anja Lapac, Ellen Matthies, Karen Pittel, Mario Ragwitz, Jürgen Renn, Dirk Uwe Sauer, Christoph M. Schmidt, Indra Spiecker genannt Döhmann, Frithjof Staiß, Annika Seiler, Cyril Stephanos & Eberhard Umbach
The next four years are critical – time is running out, but we still have one last chance. If the new German government is too slow to make the key decisions, it will be almost impossible to meet Germany’s climate targets for 2030 and 2045. But if it recognises that the new parliament offers an opportunity for a fundamental, groundbreaking change of course, it can bring urgently needed momentum to climate and energy policy and...

Kinder- und Jugendbeteiligung im Lausitzer Strukturwandel. Anschlussfähige und rechtskonforme Wege für eine gelingende Partizipation

David Löw Beer, Christoph Anders, Philipp B. Donath, Victoria Luh, Dominik Ringler & Michael Rocher
Für die Lausitz ist der Kohleausstieg mit einem umfassenden Strukturwandel verbunden. Aktuelle Entscheidungen werden die Region für die nächsten Jahrzehnte prägen. Wegen des angestiegenen Altersdurchschnitts sowie Umfragen, die eine weiterhin hohe Abwanderungsbereitschaft signalisieren (Heidig & Bischoff, 2021), wird in Dokumenten und Debatten zum Strukturwandel betont, wie wichtig es ist, die Lausitz attraktiv für junge Menschen zu gestalten. Die Beteiligung von Kindern und Jugendlichen * kann den Strukturwandelprozess verbessern, weil Ideen junger Menschen neue Impulse geben....

5M 2015-2016

Georg Rümpker, Ingo Wölbern & Carola Leva
The FOSA (FOgo Seismic Array) project has been carried out from October 2015 to December 2016 to investigate the seismicity of Fogo volcano after its eruption in 2014/2015. Fogo is the only volcano of the Cape Verde archipelago with reported historic eruptions. The eruptions occur frequently with an interval of about 20 years. However, the structure and extent of the related volcanic plumbing system are not well understood. The focus of the FOSA project was...

Human impact, climate and dispersal strategies determine plant invasion on islands

Severin D. H. Irl, Andreas H. Schweiger, Manuel J. Steinbauer, Claudine Ah-Peng, José R. Arévalo, Carl Beierkuhnlein, Alessandro Chiarucci, Curtis C. Daehler, José M. Fernández-Palacios, Olivier Flores, Christoph Kueffer, Petr Madera, Rüdiger Otto, Julienne M. I. Schweiger, Dominique Strasberg & Anke Jentsch
Aim: Biological invasions are likely determined by species dispersal strategies as well as environmental characteristics of a recipient region, especially climate and human impact. However, the contribution of climatic factors, human impact and dispersal strategies in driving invasion processes is still controversial and not well embedded in the existing theoretical considerations. Here, we study how climate, species dispersal strategies and human impact determine plant invasion processes on islands distributed in all major oceans in the...

Noctuid and geometrid moth assemblages show divergent elevational gradients in body size and color lightness

Lea Heidrich, Stefan Pinkert, Roland Brandl, Claus Bässler, Hermann Hacker, Nicolas Roth, Annika Busse & Jörg Müller
Previous macroecological studies have suggested that larger and darker insects are favored in cold environments and that the importance of body size and color for the absorption of solar radiation is not limited to diurnal insects. However, whether these effects hold true for local communities and are consistent across taxonomic groups and sampling years remains unexplored. This study examined the variations in body size and color lightness of the two major families of nocturnal moths,...

Plant diversity across small-scale boundaries

Pia Maria Eibes, Jens Oldeland, Severin David Howard Irl, Alina Twerski, Nicole Kühne & Ute Schmiedel
Questions: Habitat islands are often characterized by the presence of more or less sharp boundaries to adjacent matrix habitats. However, knowledge on boundaries of natural habitat islands is scarce, especially regarding patterns of beta diversity and its two underlying components: species turnover and nestedness. We therefore aim to quantify the effects of fine-scaled and sharp boundaries of quartz islands (quartz-gravel covered soils) on the different components of plant beta diversity and how they are linked...

Transcriptional response of mushrooms to artificial sun exposure

Franz-Sebastian Krah, Jaqueline Hess, Florian Hennicke, Ritwika Kar & Claus Bässler
Climate change causes increased tree mortality leading to canopy loss and thus sun-exposed forest floors. Sun exposure creates extreme temperatures and radiation, with potentially more drastic effects on forest organisms than the current increase in mean temperature. Such conditions might potentially negatively affect the maturation of mushrooms of forest fungi. A failure of reaching maturation would mean no sexual spore release and, thus, entail a loss of genetic diversity. However, we currently have a limited...

All-trans retinoic acid induces synaptic plasticity in human cortical neurons

Maximilian Lenz, Pia Kruse, Amelie Eichler, Jakob Straehle, Jürgen Beck, Thomas Deller & Andreas Vlachos
A defining feature of the brain is the ability of its synaptic contacts to adapt structurally and functionally in an experience-dependent manner. In the human cortex, however, direct experimental evidence for coordinated structural and functional synaptic adaptation is currently lacking. Here, we probed synaptic plasticity in human cortical slices using the vitamin A derivative all-trans retinoic acid (atRA), a putative treatment for neuropsychiatric disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. Our experiments demonstrated that the excitatory synapses...
