Green Porno

OK, maybe every single segment in Isabella Rossellini’s series “Green Porno” isn’t 100% accurate to detail… but it gets close enough for most people.

The whole series is interesting (you may click around on YouTube, but more is available on the Sundance Channel website), and probably more graphic than most people are used to seeing on an academic website - and yet this is, in a nutshell, what we study. Who mates with who, and how, and how often, and when. What they eat is for the ecologists; genetics is, after all, a study of what happens when organisms reproduce.
