  • Microscopic view of small, tube-like structures. Caption: Two kinds of cells make up the living world:

    Human beings, like every living organism, are driven by two inherent needs: to survive, and ultimately, to reproduce. To accomplish the goals of survival and reproduction, we have inherited bodies crafted by evolution so that every individual human organism is an organic super factory, a living machine made up of systems that process fuel, build products, repair damage, expel waste, and defend against invaders. Introduces the complex physiological systems of the human body: muscular movement, digestion, circulation, respiration, nerves, glands, immunity, and reproduction. Also, illustrates and explains the cellular basis of life and the importance of carbon in organic chemistry.

  • Person sleeping. Caption: there's a hormone at work to control his metabolic rate,

    The delicate interplay of hormones is responsible for all the events of reproduction. Many other body processes are controlled and coordinated by these chemical messengers. The role hormones play in response to a sudden emergency-the "fight or flight" reaction-is also reviewed.

  • Pine Reproduction 101. Pine tree, a male pinecone, and a female pinecone. Female pinecones have a long protrusion from the center and pine needles around the edges. Caption: Each tree has female pine cones and male pine cones.

    Why does everything turn yellow in spring? Pine trees produce yellow pollen every year at this time. This annoying ritual is necessary for pine trees to reproduce. Part of the "Seasonal Science" series.

  • Two cartoon characters with a DNA strand. Viruses.

    A virus is a submicroscopic infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of an organism. This video discusses virus structures and why a host is critical for viral reproduction. Part of "The Amoeba Sisters" series.

  • A herd of cattle, some adult, some baby, all with tags in their ears. Caption: The mother of this calf also has brown fur.

    Students are introduced to basic concepts related to heredity. Special emphasis is placed on some easy to understand human traits that are inherited. Concepts and terminology discussed include: characteristics, traits, and inheritance.

  • Adult and young person talking in a kitchen. Spanish captions.

    Explains what is normal for boys and girls at puberty: the biological facts of physical maturation, the timeline for growth for both sexes, the normal feelings of self-consciousness, the need for good personal hygiene, why mood swings happen, and preparation of the body for human sexuality and reproduction.

  • Planaria

    • Video
    Close up of two flat, oval, spotted worm-like animals. Caption: and, over time, regenerate their missing parts.

    Part of the "The Biology Classics" series. The cross-eyed flatworm, planaria, is both scavenger and predator, depending upon opportunity. Details food-seeking behavior, the flatworm's feeding method, locomotion (produced by a carpet of cilia), internal anatomy, and reproduction through the remarkable process of regeneration.

  • Microscopic view of cell structure. Caption: Chromosomes get lost or are missing,

    NOVA takes an in-depth look at scientific breakthroughs in reproductive science. Discusses in vitro fertilization (IVF) and examines some of the latest techniques in treating infertility: cytoplasmic transfer, micromanipulation, and egg donation. Presents the challenges and risks of infertility and treatments. Raises ethical questions about the implications of reproductive technology.
