Analyzing Patterns in the Savanna Landscape

This video showcases the work of mathematician-turned-biologist Corina Tarnita, who uses quantitative approaches to understand the role of termite mounds in the savanna ecosystem.

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.

The Double Helix

This film tells the story of the scientists and the evidence involved in one of the most important scientific quests of the 20th century: the discovery of the structure of DNA.

X Inactivation

This animation shows how X chromosomes are randomly switched off in most female mammals.

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.
