Animal Eyes and Evolution

BioMedia Associates is a group of biologists, teachers, educational designers and film-makers who collaborate to make learning programs for biology. For schools and higher education, they have eight series currently in distribution, totaling 51 video programs and three CD-ROMS. Topics cover the biology curriculum with particular emphasis on cell biology, evolution, micro-organisms, the early history of life, and the major groups of living things. This URL represents their work on evolution, but the other programs are also described on this web site. The link to Online resources for teaching about vision (Mirror Site) is outstanding. Animation of difficult to understand concepts is another BioMedia Associates specialty. See Eye of the Cyclops in their product section. See the stock footage from a collection of over 500 hours of live-action digital images of microlife, invertebrate animals, parasites and environmental scenes, along with thousands of still images. Educators, educational web site designers, and anyone else is welcome to link to this web site. You may link to any html page within the web site, but the authors request that you link to the parent page for the image files.

This material looks both fun and engaging. The pictures are extremely cool to look at, all while providing information pertaining to various species on evolution. I would use this material when discussing the topic of evolution in order to convey how different species evolve over time.
