Palaeontology and Historical Geology

After moving all collections to a new building, collections are again accessible from mid of 2019 onwards.
The department’s research is focused on the development of the System Earth from the very beginning of planetary formation until today. It is thus primarily part of the research area biodiversity and earth system.

The studies focus on particular time periods, which are based on the one hand on collection core areas and on the other hand on the research expertise of the section heads. The extensive and, in some cases historical, reference collections allow comprehensive data acquisition that would not be possible with current sampling only. These archives are invaluable for research and form an essential basis for further interpretation to the point of developing abstract models.

The department focuses on two major subject areas:

1) Organismal and Ecosystem Evolution during the Pre-Quarternary

Periods prior to human influence provide important clues for understanding current and future developments of the system Earth. The department’s research is aimed at processes and interactions from selected periods of pre-quarternary earth history, whose biotic and abiotic conditions are not directly comparable to current conditions. Due to the existing collections and the expertise of the involved scientists, these periods are the Paleozoic and the Tertiary.

2) Formation and Development of planetary bodies – Early Earth

As all the planetary bodies in our solar system, the earth was formed from material of the solar nebula. The earth’s formation occurred in three major steps: 1.) agglomeration of µm to mm-sized aggregates to m- to km-sized planetesimals 2.) accretion of moon- to mars-sized embryos through collision of planetesimals 3.) formation of the earth and other terrestrial planets through collisions of the embryos. The last step led to the internal differentiation of the Earth into core, mantle and crust as well as the formation of the atmosphere and the oceans. Unfortunately, these processes are difficult to deduce from rocks of the Earth’s crust, since movements of the tectonic plates constantly destroy the crust. Meteorite research provides a detailed understanding of the chemical and dynamic development of planetary bodies in the early phase of their formation. Accordingly, the central research question is: From the formation of the earliest aggregates to the accretion and differentiation of planetary bodies – mechanisms, time scales, spatial relations, chemism, mineralogy and alteration.

History of the department

The collection of minerals and fossils by Johann Christian Senckenberg 1763 is forming the roots of the department. This collection was highly appreciated by Johann wolfgang von Goethe in 1816 and donated to the Senckenbergische Naturforschende Gesellschaft in 1817. The mineralogical and petrographical collections formed the major focus of the next decades. But soon, palaeontological material also gained importance in collection and exchange, for some time especially due to the activities of Eduard Rüppell (1794-1884). Due to the scientific work of Eduard Rüppell and Hermann von Meyer (1801-1869), the palaeontological collections became famous worldwide and a Palaeontological Section was founded in 1861 by Otto Volger (1822-1887). 1874 was the year for the foundation of a Geological Section and the separation of a Zoo-Palaeontological and a Phyto-Palaeontological Section (the latter was re-included under palaeontology still in the 19th Century).

Palaeontological Research at Senckenberg in the 19th Century was almost completely focussed on vertebrates. Today vertebrate palaeontology is done in the Departments for Messel and Quarternary Palaeontology/Palaeoanthropolgy, and in the Sections for Mammalogy and Ornithology. Starting with the activities of A. v. Reinach (1842-1905) and F. Drevermann (1875-1932) and forced by R. Richter (1881-1957), the Department for Palaeontology and Historical Geology focussed on the Palaeozoic of the Rheinisches Schiefergebirge, especially the Devonian of the Eifel. With Willi Zegler (1929-2002), the department became one of the leading centers for conodont research. As a result of Devonian research at Senckenberg, the Lower-/Middle-Devonian boundary was defined by a Global Stratotype Section (GSSP) in the Eifel.

The geoscientific sections of the Forschungsinstitut Senckenberg were for the first time united under the roof of a Palaeozoological-Geological Department by Drevermann when a university was founded in Frankfurt in 1914, and some of the institutes including geology/palaeontology were jointly run by Senckenberg and the university. In the succeeding area of Rudolf Richter, the abbreviated name “Geological Department” became common use. In 1984, Messel research was included in the department, but became an independent department later (1992). A new Section “Historical Geology and Facies” was founded within the department in 1996, and the Palaeobotanical Section was transferred to the department in 2005.

Independent from the geological and palaeontological sections, there was a Mineralogical-Petrographical Section existing at Senckenberg until the 1920ies. Later, no further curator for these collections was hired and the material was administrated together with the palaeontological collections.

With the foundation of the new Section Meteorite Research, the subject of the inorganic processes of rock formation were strengthened. The large meteorite collections of the Max Planck Institutes in Mainz and Heidelberg were given to this section on the basis of a permanent loan.
