agree  Nancy Arrowsmith: the degrees are not as differentiated as they are in German

neutral  Ian M-H: As an answer to Asker's question (Abkürzung für Doktor der Naturwissenschaften im Englischen) this is fine, but that doesn't make it right to render "Dr. rer. nat" as "PhD", which is what the headline terms would suggest.
