The Origin of Species: Lizards in an Evolutionary Tree

This film explores the adaptation of anole lizards (genus Anolis) to habitats common across the islands of the Caribbean. The anoles are excellent examples of adaptive radiation, convergent evolution, and speciation through reproductive isolation.

Ubiquitin and the Proteasome

This animation shows how proteins in the cell are tagged for disposal by ubiquitin and then degraded by the proteasome.

Teaching Speciation Using Anole Lizards

This playlist can be used to teach several core concepts of natural selection and speciation by connecting students to actual research on Caribbean anoles. It can be used in AP/IB Biology and undergraduate college courses.

Teaching Evolution Using Lizards and Tetrapods

This playlist can be used to teach several core topics in evolution by exploring examples of lizard species evolution and the effects of mass extinctions on tetrapod evolution. It can be used in undergraduate biology courses.

Teaching Cell Biology and Genetics Using Cancer

This playlist can be used to teach several core topics in cell biology and genetics by connecting students with case studies and multimedia resources about cancer. It can be used in undergraduate biology courses.
