Catalan newspaper ARA devotes its Sunday edition to evolutionary biology and to IBE

It has been produced in collaboration with the Institute in the occasion of its 10th anniversary. It includes an interview to IBE director Tomàs Marquès-Bonet, as well as six other pages, two interactives and one video dealing with several aspects of human evolution.



IBE turns 10 years old in 2018. This seemed a good excuse to suggest the Catalan quality newspaper ARA that they could devote a special issue to evolutionary biology and, by extension, the Institute. ARA felt enthusiastic about the idea, and decided to work with IBE in the definition of the content of the especial issue. After several months of work, it was published on 1st July in the occasion of the 160th anniversary of the day Darwin and Wallace’s theory of natural selection was first presented to the scientific community ―in the Linnean Society of London.

In addition to the content published in the paper edition, two interactives and one video were published online. The interactives were funded with an ESEB Outreach initiative fund 2018
