Abstract in German

Kurzbiographien zu 104 Lichenologen werden vorgestellt, beginnend mit der alten Zeit von Hoffmann im 18. Jahrhundert mit dem Schwerpunkt der Klassifizierung der Flechten, über das 19.

Jahrhundert mit der Entdeckung der Flechtensymbiose durch Schwendener und Stahl, bis in die dynamische Periode des 20. Jahrhunderts mit ihrer enormen wissenschaftlichen Entwicklung. Eine neue Generation von jungen Lichenologen setzt jetzt erfolgreiche diese Tradition fort.
Short biographies of 104 lichenologists who have played a key role in the development of German lichenology are provided. These date from Hoffmann and the early days of lichen classification in the

18th century, through the 19th century with the discovery of the lichen symbiosis by Schwendener and Stahl, to the dynamic period of enormous scientific development of the 20th century. A significant

body of German lichenologists continue to expand this remarkable achievement into the 21th century.
