Learn Through Videos: Evolution
This is a collection of links to educational videos related to evolution, which are made for a general audience. The videos listed in this collection include lectures and documentary films telling the scientific story of evolution. They discuss the evolution of life on Earth and in the universe. They trace Earth's geologic evolution and explore the catastrophic events that shaped planet Earth. They discuss the theory of evolution by natural selection, as well as tell the story about the lives and works of Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace. They explain the evolutionary origins of a particular trait of living creatures such as eyes, size and skin. They explore the specialized strategies and extreme behavior that living things have developed in order to survive. And also they tell the story of human evolution from Australopithecus afarensis to Homo sapiens and look at the evidence for the theory of early human migrations out of Africa and subsequently around the world.
