University Deeply Saddened by the Death of Dr. Tobias Scharnweber
Dr. Tobias Scharnweber passed away on 19 November 2023. Dr. Scharnweber (born 1974) studied “Landscape Ecology and Nature Conservation” at the University of Greifswald and also completed his doctorate here in 2015. Shortly after finishing his qualifications, he took over as Head of the Dendroecological Lab at the Institute of Botany and Landscape Ecology. With high levels of subject expertise, exceptional commitment and above all, his big heart, he was a popular contact for students, staff members, and colleagues in Greifswald and further afield.

‘Spending an ERASMUS semester in Greifswald was the best decision I could have made. The opportunity to gain so many new experiences, broaden my horizons and get to know people from many different countries have made my choice well worth it. The University of Greifswald provides excellent guidance and support to its ERASMUS+ students. There are so many trips and events on offer.’ (Kasia - Poland)
