Cellular Evolution in the Green Algae (DVD)
DURATION: 60 mins.
A dynamic view of evolution
Using examples from the green algae, this videodisc details how single cells become associated with one another to form colonies with increasingly advanced characteristics. It provides us with fascinating living examples of the step-by-step appearance of complexity in form and behaviour. Basic principles of cellular evolution are used to explore issues of complexity and diversity as organisms themselves become multi-cellular and larger.
