Biodiversity: its main components, and challenges for knowledge
Pedro Jordano
Estación Biológica de Doñana, CSIC, Seville, ES
The concept of biodiversity goes well beyond the simple lists of species and species number we frequently refer to. It also encompasses components such genetic (within-species) diversity, species interactions, and the myriad associated ecological functions and services. Ongoing research on biodiversity aims to quantify these different components but still confronts difficult challenges. Among them, the most important is the fast-paced loss of species and ecological functions due to human-related disturbances such as deforestation and habitat loss, hunting, pollution, and other global change drivers. In this talk I address these challenges and the main expected advances in the study of biodiversity in ways that can be translated to the general public and school levels.

Evolution in school: the strategy of teaching the actuality of a theory
Juli Peretó
University of Valencia, Valencia, ES

For many years the University of València has organized specific activities for high-school teachers. Since 2006 a permanent program of mini-symposia addressing evolutionary topics, from the origin of life to the evolution of consciousness, and showing a wide range of methodological approaches, from ecology to biochemistry, has been established. Regularly, more than 200 teachers attend these meetings and discuss topics with experts looking for a better understanding, updated scientific background and new ways to teach evolution at the different school levels. Spreading the idea that evolutionary biology must percolate all teaching activities is a major goal of this program. This strategic thinking is based on the notion of presenting the theory of evolution not only as a beautiful idea but also as a useful and beneficial scientific endeavor. Charles Darwin found deep inspiration for his natural selection theory from artificial selection, i.e. the domestication of plants and animals. Today there are many examples of applied evolutionary biology showing the usefulness of the theory, especially in the
