New name as of 2017: ZMT now called Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research

The Leibniz Center for Tropical Marine Ecology – ZMT for short – is now called the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research. (Old German name: Leibniz-Zentrum für Marine Tropenökologie; new German name: Leibniz-Zentrum für Marine Tropenforschung.) The name change entered into force on January 1, 2017. The name change takes into account the increasingly interdisciplinary scope of the ZMT, which includes both the natural sciences and the social sciences.
