BioGrafias1-500x500Last week was also the launch of the book “BioGrafias: Vidas de quem estuda a Vida”, for which I am one of the editors, a project that brings together 18 Portuguese biologist who share with the public the 35  most remarkable episodes of their careers. Spread across five continents these stories portray the wide range of challenges field biologists have to deal with but also the incredible beauty we witness while working. This illustrated story book was the result of three years of hard work that culminated in a crowd sourcing campaign that collected the 3400€ needed to print 500 copies of the book . The book is selling like hot cakes and less than 200 are still available. The book bought be found online here (its in Potuguese by the way)
