达尔文所不知道的事 What Darwin Never Knew

达尔文所不知道的事剧情简介
  Earth teems with a staggering variety of animals, including 9,000 kinds of birds, 28,000 types of fish, and more than 350,000 species of beetles. What explains this explosion of living creatures—1.4 million different species discovered so far, with perhaps another 50 million to go? The source of life's endless forms was a profound mystery until Charles Darwin brought forth his revolutionary idea of natural selection. But Darwin's radical insights raised as many questions as they answered. What actually drives evolution and turns one species into another? To what degree do different animals rely on the same genetic toolkit? And how did we evolve?
  "What Darwin Never Knew" offers answers to riddles that Darwin couldn't explain. Breakthroughs in a brand-new science—nicknamed "evo devo"—are linking the enigmas of evolution to another of nature's great mysteries, the development of the embryo. NOVA takes viewers on a journey from the Galapagos Islands to the Arctic, and from the explosion of animal forms half a billion years ago to the research labs of today. Scientists are finally beginning to crack nature's biggest secrets at the genetic level. The results are confirming the brilliance of Darwin's insights while revealing clues to life's breathtaking diversity in ways the great naturalist could scarcely have imagined.

后半段很不错,各种DNA证据给对进化论质疑的神棍们一记耳光。

很靠谱但是很催眠。

解答了咱这代中学遗留问题,同时另一个问题就更加玄乎了,如此复杂的基因,第一条是怎么来的?

说实话前半段看得睡着了,从人类基因组计划开始才稍稍开始有趣了些,原来拇指的能力和咬合肌的弱化都对人类之所以成为人类而做出了巨大的贡献。
