Welcome to the website of Gert Wörheideof the Molecular Geo- & Palaeobiology Lab of the the Department of Geobiology of the Geoscience Centre of the University of Göttingen. Geobiology investigates the present and past interactions between life and inanimate matter, the evolution of organisms, their complex interactions with the environment and the synergisms between geosphere and biosphere. The interaction between geological and biological events has shaped the Earth and its biodiversity. Studies of geobiology promise to reveal the secrets of life, its origin and evolution, and its present functions on our planet. In my lab, we are focussing on the biodiversity and evolution of marine invertebrates and on the evolution of biomineralisation.
My studies focus on Sponges, Coralline Sponges, Calcarea, Subclass Calcinea, Subclass Calcaronea, Biomineralisation, Evolution, Phylogeny, Marine Biodiversity, Phylogeography, Reef Check and many more.
