This volume consists of 29 original papers presented at the 12th Conference of European Researchers in Didactics of Biology (ERIDOB) organized by the University of Zaragoza in collaboration with University de Santiago de Compostela, hosted in July 2018 by the Faculty of Education, University of Zaragoza, Spain. Recognizing the importance and potential of being well-trained in biology, the bi-annual Conference of ERIDOB is now a firmly established and leading forum for European and non-European researchers to discuss and reflect on research in biology education, to find new ways of ensuring continued advances in teaching and learning this discipline. Biology is a field of research in constant growth. Its advances have brought not only enormous benefits to humanity in fields from Human Biology to Ecology, but also great repercussions in our daily lives. This context makes it necessary for biology education to equip young people with the tools and resources needed to become scientifically literate, critical thinkers and social activists. Some of these concerns are highlighted in this book, whose 29 papers have been selected after having passed a double blind review process by at least one member of the ERIDOB Academic Committee together with an experienced reviewer of the ERIDOB academic community.
