Diagram of the internal view of the female reproductive system. Design modalities for the image include braille with and without labels, print with and without labels in greyscale, color, and texture.
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.
Discusses the diverse reproductive strategies of microorganisms. One of nine segments in a series, with all nine available on a DVD.
In this video, Pinky and Petunia discuss the 11 major organ systems in the human body. These include the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovasular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive system. Part of "The Amoeba Sisters" series.
Provides an overview of how attraction, desire, and sexual coupling lead to conception. Covers the physiological events underlying the process of reproduction. NOTE: graphic content.
In this episode, host Emily Graslie meets with Dr. Robert Martin to discuss the evolution of human birth. They also highlight the progress being made to reduce mortality rates related to giving birth. Part of "The Brain Scoop" series.
Water fleas are crustaceans, and they are the foundation for the web of life in water ecosystems. They are the most plentiful food source for other water ecosystem organisms. One of nine segments in a series, with all nine available on a DVD.
Something is growing inside of fruit flies. At dusk, a fly points its wings straight up and dies in a gruesome pose so that a fungus can ooze out and fire hundreds of reproductive spores. At Harvard, Carolyn Elya is trying to understand how this fungus takes over the fly's brain. Part of the "Deep Look" series.
Part of the "Branches on the Tree of Life" series. Explores the structure, life cycles, ecology, classification, and evolutionary relationships of four major lines of fungi: Chytrids, Zygomycetes (various molds), Ascomycetes (yeasts, cup fungi, and most lichens), and Basidiomycetes (rusts and mushrooms). Emphasizes adaptations and reproductive mechanisms.
Part of the "Branches on the Tree of Life" series. Begins with a series of observations on Hydra, including habitat, structure, feeding, nematocyst discharge, locomotion (by looping), and its sexual and asexual reproductive strategies. Obelia illustrates the two-stage life cycle found in many cnidarians. Examining the biology of jellyfish (class Scyphozoa), sea anemones, and corals (class Anthozoa) rounds out the overview of phylum Cnidaria.
With recent advances in genetic and reproductive technology, couples can now rely on science to avoid giving birth to children with various genetic conditions. Explores the medical and ethical dilemmas that two couples face as they plan the birth of a child who may inherit their own genetic condition (dwarfism in one case, cystic fibrosis in the other). Bioethicists question the use of technology to ensure parents give birth only to a healthy child. NOTE: Includes footage of a baby being born via Caesarian section.
Working in the islands of the Caribbean, biologist Jonathan Losos has discovered the traits that enable dozens of anole species to adapt to different vertical niches in the forest. Differences in limb length, body shape, and toepad size allow different species to flourish on the ground. However, lizards living on thin branches or high in the canopy have different characteristics. These varied adaptations have played a key role in reproductive isolation and the formation of new species.
