By Gudrun Fischer

Seit vielen hundert Jahren unternehmen Frauen Expeditionen, forschen in Laboren, katalogisieren Tiere, Pflanzen und Daten aus der Natur, entwickeln Theorien. Sie haben bahnbrechende Erfolge in der biologischen Forschung und stehen damit dem weltberühmten Naturforscher Darwin in nichts nach. Diese Frauen hatten Einfallsreichtum, Intelligenz und Mut, aber nur wenige sind in dieser Männerdomäne wirklich berühmt geworden. Die Porträtsammlung "Darwins Schwestern" schließt eine Wissenslücke: Die Autorinnen richten den Blick auf Pionierinnen der Naturforschung, beleuchten Lebenswege von Forscherinnen aus dem letzten Jahrhundert und lassen Nobelpreisträgerinnen zu Wort kommen. Und nicht zuletzt werden Wissenschaftlerinnen vorgestellt, die heute in biologischen Fächern ihre Karriere aufbauen.

Porträtiert werden u.a. Maria Sibylla Merian (Insektenkunde), Amalie Dietrich (Zoologie und Botanik), Margarete von Wrangell (Pflanzenernährung), Elisabeth Schiemann (Genetik), Elisabeth Mann Borgese (Meeresschutz), Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard (Entwicklungsbiologie), Karin Lochte (Meeresbiologie), Barbara McClintock (Genetik); Birgit Sattler (Limnologie/Mikrobiologie).
