Karl August Möbius (1825- 1908)

Karl August Möbius was one of the most important zoologists of the 19th century, who became known for his ecological work on oyster beds in the North Frisian Wadden Sea and coined the term "biocenosis". His concept of ecological living communities was groundbreaking. On this basis, he formulated his first ideas on nature conservation and worked out proposals for the sustainable use of natural resources.

After a long period of teaching and research at the University of Kiel, Möbius was appointed Full Professor at the Friedrich Wilhelm University Berlin in 1887 and Director of the Zoological Collection of the Museum of Natural History. He was also a member of the Berlin Academy of Sciences.

Nathanael Pringsheim (1823 - 1894)

Nathanael Pringsheim was a German botanist who devoted himself in particular to algae research and was frequently visiting the island of Helgoland for his morphological-physiological work on sea algae. In 1860 he was appointed as a full member of the Berlin Academy of Sciences.

Pringsheim was very committed to founding a German marine research station. On his initiative, a commission was convened in 1890. Finally, in 1892, following an extensive assessment process, the  "Royal Prussian Biological Institute on Helgoland" was founded, which established a small field station for oyster research and the exploration of the Wadden Sea on the Island of Sylt in 1924.
