Summary:
Because they have evolved in isolation for millions of years, island life forms often show characteristics seen nowhere else on Earth. Segments cover plants and animals of the Galapagos, Indonesia, and Tasmania. ISLANDS OF THEORY: Visits Argentina's Galapagos Islands and introduces the native residents that helped Charles Darwin formulate his theory of evolution. ISOLATED ISLANDS: Hops from Sulawesi to Java and Anak Krakatoa to explore how their ecosystems have developed. EXTINCT NO MORE: Follows an Australian scientist as he isolates the DNA that may one day help restore the long-extinct Tasmanian tiger. As students travel the Southern Hemisphere and encounter its wide variety of life forms, they get compelling clues to how species and traits develop over time.

Only available in the US.
