RICARD ARASA GISBERT, Editor in All you need is Biology
I wouldn’t have never imagine, at the age of 5, while I picked up green tomatoes from the garden of my grandfather (with a little reprimand included) and watched how a daily procession of ants collected seeds without stopping, that I would end as a biologist. These typical events in the field, so common to many, were part of my summer distractions and they fascinated a city boy who had barely set foot in a forest in his life. However, thanks to these stimuli, and a good environment that helped me to cultivate this growing interest in the organisms, I became who I am. I graduated in Environmental Biology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and, in the same year, I decided to follow the academic career studying the Masters in Terrestrial Ecology offered by the same university, which I am still studying. My master’s thesis is focused on studying the variables that influence the spatial distribution of carbon stocks in forests of Mexico.
One of my dreams is, in the not too distant future, to work on projects related to tropical ecology, biome that I admire the most since I was very young for its biodiversity and the intimate relationships between species, besides being one of the most threatened biomes on the planet.
My hobbies are sports, movies and TV series, reading, videogames and spending time with my people.
