DIY Hack the Panke guide participants along the Panke River
in Berlin-Wedding, discussing the interaction of water, soil and
atmosphere from the molecular level and how this effects and is
affected by organisms up to the larger ecological level. They explain
how water, plants and soil take part in cycles of carbon and nitrogen
that support life, and how Berlin's urban environment can both nurture
and threaten biodiversity.

of research is soil ecology and mycorrizal symbiosis.
Morrison is a biochemist and illustrator. He completed his PhD
