Nature's wonderlands. island ark( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because of their isolated eco-systems, islands provide nature's clearest illustration of how evolution works. It was by studying life on the Galapagos islands that Darwin's theory of evolution was born. More than 150 years later, Nature's Wonderlands goes to three islands to meet the unique species that illustrate his ideas. From carnivorous caterpillars and flowers that bloom once every 20 years, to the remains of pygmy hippos and gorilla-sized lemurs, this series profiles the modern-day residents of these habitats, as well as their fossilized forebears. This fascinating study explains how life on Earth has evolved, and asks how we can protect it against the growing threat of mass extinction. In the final episode, Richard Fortey travels to Madeira to examine what happens to a volcanic island as it nears the end of its life cycle and starts sinking back into the sea. Here, in the island's laurisilva forest, he examines the remains of an ancient forest that once carpeted all of Europe, finds island lizards that live to be four times older than their mainland counterparts, and meets a huge wolf spider. With the help of local divers, he also discovers an unexpectedly rich marine habitat populated by whales, dolphins and unusual deep-sea species that have much to tell us about the changing nature of our seas
Fossil wonderlands( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this revelatory series, Professor Richard Fortey, Britain's foremost chronicler of ancient worlds, tells the extraordinary history of palaeontology through three of the world's greatest fossil sites. These fossil 'time capsules' contain entire eco-systems of now-vanished worlds. Only a handful of them exist in the world, but each one of them has overturned generations of paleontological thinking and reconfigured our understanding of the past. These 'super-sites' are uniquely special not just because of the scale of the life preserved but because each location reveals a history of evolution of one type of creature and highlights three key evolutionary moments: early life in the seas, feathered dinosaurs and the rise of birds and the birth of mammals. Together they tell a story not just of the ancient past, but how that past was discovered. In this final episode, Professor Richard Fortey investigates the remains of an ancient volcanic lake in Germany where stunningly well-preserved fossils of early mammals, giant insects and even perhaps our oldest known ancestor have been found. Among the amazing finds are bats as advanced and sophisticated as anything living today, more than 50 million years later, dog-sized 'dawn' horses, the ancestor of the modern horse, and giant ants as large as hummingbirds

In this first episode, Professor Richard Fortey journeys high in the Rocky Mountains to explore a 520 million-year-old fossilized seabed containing bizarre and experimental life forms that have revolutionized our understanding about the beginnings of complex life. Among the amazing finds he uncovers are marine creatures with five eyes and a proboscis, filter-feeders shaped like tulips, worm-like scavengers covered in spikes but with no identifiable head or anus, and a meter-long predator resembling a giant shrimp

This fascinating study explains how life on Earth has evolved, and asks how we can protect it against the growing threat of mass extinction. Professor Richard Fortey travels to the rainforests of Madagascar - an ancient island that has spawned some of the most extraordinary groups of plants and animals anywhere in the world. From beautiful Indri lemurs, toxic frogs, and the cat-like giant mongoose called the fossa, to evolutionary oddities like the giraffe-necked weevil and the otherworldly aye-aye, he uncovers the secrets of the evolutionary niche - examining how, given millions of years, animals and plants can adapt to fill almost any opportunity they find

This fascinating study explains how life on Earth has evolved, and asks how we can protect it against the growing threat of mass extinction. In the first episode, Fortey is on Hawaii to investigate how life colonizes a newly born island. According to some estimates, Hawaii has been successfully colonized by only one new species every 35,000 years due to its remote location - yet the Hawaiian Islands teem with a great diversity of life. In search of the evolutionary secrets of how one species becomes many, Fortey encounters beautiful honeycreeper birds whose evolution rivals that of Darwin's famous finches; carnivorous caterpillars who now can't eat leaves, and giant silversword plants that thrive in parched volcanic soil at 10,000 feet

In the second episode, Professor Richard Fortey travels to north eastern China to see a fossil site known as the 'Dinosaur Pompeii' - a place that has yielded spectacular remains of feathered dinosaurs and rewritten the story of the origins of birds. Among the amazing finds he investigates are the feathered cousin of T-rex, a feathered dinosaur with strong parallels to living pandas, and some of the most remarkable flying animals that have ever lived
