Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

The Tree of Life

tags: , , , , , ,

This streaming video is a beautiful animated clip describing the Tree of Life. Evolution shows how life diverged into the myriad life forms that we see today, and that we know existed in eons past. “The Tree of Life” was part of Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life, which was broadcast on BBC1 on Sunday 1 February 2009. Narrated by the incomparable David Attenborough (you lucky, Brits, I am so jealous). [Although, I am told you can supposedly download it for free]. If you can, watch this full-screen.

You can also play with the interactive Tree of Life online, too.
