How does evolution work?

How did three-and-a-half billion years of evolution come to produce you and me?

From the definition of a species, to DNA, mutations and natural selection, this quirky animation explains how the enormous diversity of life on earth has developed through evolution.

With the help of some cartoon creatures, and an appearance from Darwin’s finches, natural selection is explored from the genetic level to the influence of a species’ environment, illustrating how an animal’s uniqueness is an essential quality for the process of evolution.
