Summer is here…

… and BlogIONIK is on vacation.

Thanks a lot to all of you for following us throughout another year.

We hope we can still fascinate you with our articles and stories. What do you think about our new concept of topical collections?


To get in the summer mood, maybe it’s time to (re)read some of our articles fitting the season:

How do sunflowers ‚move‘ towards the light?

Getting to know a living air-conditioner: the camel!

How to plants and animals regulate temperature? And how is this evaluated from an engineering point of view?


Or do you rather need something to cool off ? Then you should check out our theme session about ice 🙂


We will be back in the middle of September with 3 more theme sessions until we will start with a new concept in 2018.

We hope to see you then – have an interesting and realxing holiday!


All the best,

Anja, Jan, Kathi & Wassem

My name is Katharina Bunk, I am 26 years old and work as a PhD student in the ‘Plant Biomechanics Group’ in the beautiful city of Freiburg. I studied Biology at the University of Munich followed by the Master program ‘Bionik/ Biomimetics in Energy Systems’ in Villach/ Austria. I am especially interested in Botany and therefore chose Plant Biomechanics as my main field of research.
