SARA DE LA ROSA RUIZ, Editor at All you need is Biology
Graduate in Biology, Master in Management and Conservation of Wildlife and Protected Areas, Master in Ethology and Master’s in Secundary Education.
I had my first contacts with nature when I was only 10 years old, and I knew that I wanted to be a vet.
However, I started to study Biology, involving in some environment volunteer programs, in which I discovered a perfect way to develop my vocation as a “conservation biologist”. Since then, I have worked to be a specialist in wildlife conservation.
I have worked with different species, particularly with raptors: management, breeding, and recovery in the nature, so in management conservation projects. Working closely with animals enabled me to learn issues about their behaviors and increase my interest in Ethological research, that currently as well as working on a LIFE project about biodiversity conservation.
My aim in these articles is make know birds to appreciate their value and to involve in their conservation.

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.
You can send me any question, comment or suggestion through Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn.
MIREIA RAMOS MUNTADA, Editor at All you need is Biology
Degree in Genetics at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB).
I graduated in Genetics at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, part of 3rd promotion of geneticist in Spain.
In genetics, what inspired me the most was medical genetics because help other people makes me feel better. This is one reason to do volunteering.
Since I was young, I am interested in teach and transmit my knowledge. In my articles I want to introduce the genetic world easily, for all public.

LAIA BARRES GONZÁLEZ, Editor at All you need is Biology
PhD in botany by the University of Barcelona. I studied my doctoral thesis at the Botanical Institute of Barcelona (CSIC -ICUB), which focused on understanding the evolution and biogeography of two groups of plants, the Macaronesian Euphorbia shrubs known as tabaibas and Cardueae subtribe (Asteraceae). Master in biology and biodiversity also by the University of Barcelona. Professionalized in science education and education for sustainability, I worked in several environmental education centers and science museums.
I am currently conducting a research project at the Federal University of Bahia (Salvador, Brazil) focused on the phylogeography of Richterago (Asteraceae), an endemic and threatened genus in the Espinhaço Range as a postdoctoral fellow.
My hobbies are photography, hiking, cooking and travel.
Today, Monday 23th March 2015, it has been place the first meeting of All you need is Biology in Barcelona, in which Mireia, person in charge of the Terrestrial Mammals section; Adriel, person in charge of Botany section; and Irene, responsible of Arthropods; as well as Marc, director and responsible of Marine Mammals and Environment.
The topics have been these:
