Cycles of Life: Exploring Biology offers a panoramic view of life on Earth.
From the chemical origins of life to complex and fragile ecosystems, the episodes dramatically
show how biology explores the living world and offer:
---Leading information and proven instructional methods.
---Compelling footage from around the world
---Captivating 3-D computer animation and original microvideography.
"I teach biology and anatomy/physiology at the high school and junior high levels.
I ordered last summer the high school edition of the Cycles of Life and absolutely love it.
These videos are the perfect length for the attention span of teenagers, the animations show concepts that are difficult to visualize from reading, the interviews with researchers show the excitement, piecing together of information, and slow, detail-oriented processes of scientific discovery, and the real-world application of research."
---Lin Westler — East Peoria Community High, East Peoria, Illinois.
