Vertebrates 2

More than 350 million years ago, the evolution of amphibians set in. Amphibians developed from fish – a first step towards life on land. Diverse reproduction strategies, manifold forms of appearance and a broad spectrum of sizes, ranging from the tiny Brazil litter frog to the giant salamander, constitute the special characteristics of the class of amphibians. The pupils learn about the different respiration techniques and the particularities of the amphibians’ circulatory system as well as about their defining characteristics and their repro- duction strategies. Moreover, the threat to amphibian species posed by environ- mental poisons and the climate change is also discussed. This DVD leads the pupils into the fascinating, unknown world of amphibians, which still remains to be fully researched.
