Moors play a vital role in our global climate. Further efforts to drain moors and swamps can have disastrous consequences according to WWU landscape ecologist Prof. Dr Klaus-Holger Knorr in this month’s issue of the University newspaper wissen|leben. In our October issue you will also learn why studying psychology is more popular than ever before. The fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago is the subject of one of our theme pages. In his guest commentary, history professor Dr Thomas Größbölting explains why Germans struggle to recapture the exuberance of that historic night.
