Stunning fossil finds have recently revealed the fascinating stories of evolution’s greatest transitions—from fish that gained the land, to reptiles that took to the air, and primates that walked on two legs.
The Great Transitions film trilogy features leading evolutionary paleontologists—showing how they find rocks of the right ages, discover transitional forms, and reconstruct the environments those species lived in. Each film is under 20 minutes in length and specially crafted for classroom use.
This DVD includes: Great Transitions: The Origin of Tetrapods; Great Transitions: The Origin of Birds; and Great Transitions: The Origin of Humans.
One disc, approximately 60 minutes.
