Ot Pasques received his BSc in Biotechnology from the University of Barcelona in 2021. He studied plant ecophysiology during the last year of his degree, and as a part of his final degree project he participated in the study of stress tolerance mechanisms of Plantago lanceolata in the Pyrenees. After that, he continued to study pyrenean plant life during his MSc in Environmental Agrobiology at the University of Barcelona. Alongside Prof. Munné-Bosch, he researched the morphological and physiological traits underlying longevity in extremely old Pinus uncinata trees located in the Pyrenees, focusing in several stress, growth, dormancy and vigor markers as well as in modular growth and dormancy. Nowadays, he is carrying out his PhD in plant longevity and adaptability of different high mountain species in different pyrenean threatened ecosystems.
