Amazon Adventure

bigImage AMAZON ADVENTURE tells the adventure story of Henry Bates' fascinating 11-year journey through the Amazon. Bates mad crucial contributions to biology: identifying 8,000 new species; discovering the phenomenon of "Batesian" mimicry whereby animals adopt the look of others to deceive predators; and most importantly, putting forward the first case for speciation -- the birth of a new species. This discovery turned out to be the "beautiful proof" for Natural Selection. Audiences will be wowed by mind-boggling examples of mimicry and see scientific discovery as an ongoing process with current genetic research that is uncovering the never before seen, microscopic mechanisms behind speciation -- using the same animals at the heart of Bates' discoveries 150 years ago.
