"Evolution" offers a groundbreaking and definitive view of the extraordinary impact the evolutionary process has had on our understanding of the world around us. Beginning with Darwin's revolutionary theory, this seven-part series explores all facets of evolution--the changes that spawned the tree of life, the power of sex, how evolution continues to affect us every day, and the perceived conflict between science and religion."
"Four and a half billion years ago, how did life emerge on Earth? Robert Hazen advances a startling idea, that the rocks on Earth were not only essential to jump-starting life, but then, life helped give birth to hundreds of minerals we rely upon today."
"Over the course of a year, it follows those who live in one of the most extraordinary places on the planet, Australia's Great Barrier Reef, where man meets wild and nature calls the shots. It's high stakes and high drama across our greatest marine wilderness."
"Our planet has millions of species, including thousands of mammals, fish, birds and reptile, and even more butterflies, beetles, and other animals, each adapted to one of an enormous variety of habitats. The Richness and diversity of Life raises two of the most profound questions in biology: How do new species form? And why are there so many species? The Origin of the Species series tells the stories of the intrepid naturalists who traveled the world, from the famed Galapagos islands to the Malay Archipelago, in search of evidence and answers."
"Stem cells are fundamental to biology. In the course of embryonic development, stem cells generate all the specialized cells that populate body tissues like muscle, the nervous system, and blood. In adults, reserves of stem cells repair and regenerate tissues damaged by disease and wounding. Because of the potential of stem cells to generate fresh, healthy cells, there is a huge interest in cultivating them to treat various diseases. This year's Holiday Lectures will explore exciting progress toward the goal of harnessing stem cells to treat diabetes, nerve damage, and heart disease--WWW page of biointeractive.org."
" The source of the earth's great variety of animals was a scientific mystery until Charles Darwin proposed the idea of natural selection. Nova presents breakthroughs in a new science nicknamed "evo devo" that are linking the enigma of origins to another of nature's mysteries, the development of embryos."
