Summary
For man, beast and nature, it's been a constant battlefield of change. Some strategic advances were anatomical while others were behavioral. While the bald eagle developed telescopic vision capable of spotting a hare a mile away, the shark evolved the act of sex as we humans know it. Discover what has propelled creatures large and small to survive. Trace the history and importance of these adaptations from their earliest beginnings to today

  • Eyes: Seeing is believing ... not to mention evading, eating and surviving! Learn how the eyeball evolved from ancestors of jellyfish who developed light-sensitive cells to the unique adaptations that allowed primates to better exploit their new habitat, while the ability to see colors helped them find food. --Publisher's description
  • Sex: Sex is a necessity for most species to survive. As evolution continues, are we approaching a time when sex will no longer be a necessity? How is this possible? EVOLVE looks at the history of sex for numerous species. Fish, insects, mammals, amphibians, and everything in between are examined. -- Publisher's description
  • Size: How to we measure up? Understanding the amazing processes that gave us vertebrates small than a thumbnail (a Cuban frog) and longer than a diesel locomotive (a blue whale). But what are the mechanisms of these adaptations, the evolutionary pressures that affect size, and the physical limits life can attain? -- Publisher's description
