About the authors

Most of the texts were created based on input from former or current members of the Institute of Agricultural Sciences (IAS) at ETH Zurich. Noëmi Elmiger and Céline Jenni have processed  many of these around 70 submissions into fluid texts. Most of them were then edited by Anna K. Gilgen. Special thanks to Lieni Dürst, former Study Coordinator of Agricultural Sciences and Emma Lindberg, Study Coordinator of Agricultural Sciences for helping with the fact check.
