The Johann Christian Senckenberg University Library was formed on January 1st 2005 by merging the City and University Library Frankfurt am Main (established 1484) and the Senckenberg Library (founded 1763). Among other things, it is in charge of the Special Interest Collection Biology of the German Research Foundation. The latter can also be accessed via the Virtual Specialised Biology Library
The Natural Sciences Library (BNat) is, e.g., for the literature provision of the biological sciences.
It is located in the Riedberg Campus in the Otto Stern Centre.
The LOEWE Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre (BiK-F), which was founded in 2008 as a joint venture of the Senckenberg Society for Nature Research and the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, has the objective of performing internationally outstanding research in the field of interactions between organismic biodiversity and climate.
With innovative research approaches and using a broad spectrum of state-of-the-art methods - from satellite-assisted remote sensing of the climate, area and ecosystem reactions up to molecular genetics and mass spectrometry - past and current events and processes are documented and analysed in order to develop reliable projections and bases for future decisions based on those methods.
The Botanical Garden is operated by the city of Frankfurt.
Close scientific co-operations with work groups of this Faculty and the Botanical Garden have existed since the foundation of the university.
Cluster of Excellence Frankfurt - Molecular Complexes
The Cluster of Excellence „Macromolecular Complexes“ at the Goethe University Frankfurt (CEF) was established in November 2006.
Research at the CEF aims at understanding macromolecular complexes, in particular the molecular mechanisms and functional consequences underlying the interactions of biological macromolecules in the cell, or in the cell membrane.
The Palm Garden was founded in 1868 and has been an integral part of the cityscape ever since.
Since the foundation of the university, there have been scientific and teaching co-operations with work groups of the Faculty of Biological Sciences.
True to its motto “Experience animals – preserve nature”, the Frankfurt Zoo provides its visitors with an authentic animal experience and is active in the protection of nature and species.
Since 2010 the head of the Zoo, Professor Dr. Manfred Niekisch has been a Professor for International Protection of Nature in the Faculty of Biological Sciences at the Goethe University Frankfurt.
