Pere Renom

“We have given you, O Adam, no visage proper to yourself, nor endowment properly your own, in order that whatever place, whatever form, whatever gifts you may, with premeditation, select, these same you may have and possess through your own judgement and decision […] We have made you a creature neither of heaven nor of earth, neither mortal nor immortal, in order that you may, as the free and proud shaper of your own being, fashion yourself in the form you may prefer.”
Oration on the Dignity of Man – Giovanni Pico della Mirandola

El Hierro: from fire to life

published on 23 05 2012

We travel to El Hierro to understand how volcanic episode occurred in 2011. We also visit each ecosystem of this Canary Island and explain how these very different environments have been slowly forming from the random arrival of plants and animals which later evolved and gave rise to new species. Some of these biological jewels are the giant lizard, the canary laurel or the Bolles laurel pigeon.
