The endocrine system molecular messengers, chemical control ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"First looks at the chemical structure of various hormones, the hormone receptors found on target cells, and the feedback mechanisms that regulate homone levels. After explaining the difference between exocrine and endocrine glands the program then looks at the various endocrine glands and organs including: the hypothalamus; the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands; the pancreas, testes and ovaries; and organs such as the thymus, kidneys, stomack, small intestine and heart that produce hormones".--Container
Human impact on the biosphere ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Introduces the concept of biological magnification before looking at the various types of air pollution and their relationship to phenomena such as smog, acid rain, destruction of the ozone layer and global warming"--Container
The immunological system recognition, attack and memory ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Starts by looking at external barriers to microbial attack such as the skin and mucus membranes and non-specific internal defenses such as macrophages, natural killer cells, and the inflammatory response. The program then delves into the immune response including the recognition of invaders by antibodies and T-cell receptors, the destruction of invaders by antibodies and cytoxic T-cells, and the immunity conferred by memory cells"--Container
Community interactions competition, predation, and symbiosis ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Discusses the concepts of community, co-evolution, ecological niche, predator-prey relationships, parasitism, commensalism, and mutualism
Terrestrial biomes deserts, grasslands, & forests ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Starts by introducing the four requirements of life - nutrients, energy, liquid water and temperatures appropriate for carrying out life processes and then goes on to explain the factors such as latitude, proximity to oceans, and elevation, that affect climate. Climates relationship to the type of vegetation found in a biome is then explained before introducing students to the major terrestrial biomes including tropical reinforests, temperae rainforests, deciduous forests, savannas, grasslands, chaparrals, taiga, tundra and deserts."--Conteneur

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Provides an in-depth study of the structure and function of cardiac, smooth and skeletal muscles; the roles of the skeletal system and the integumentary system, including the production of blood cells and the storage of nutrients; and the coordination of the muscular and skeletal systems to produce movement
Populations biotic potential, environmental resistance ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Looks at how population growth rates are calculated and introduces the concepts of biotic potential, exponential growth, and environmental resistance before looking at boom-and-bust cycles and the capacity of ecosystems
The World's biomes desert to rainforest ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"This Great Pacific program begins introducing students to how various physical factors determine the climate of a biome and in turn, the density of life within a given biome. The program then takes students on a journey through rainforests, deserts, grasslands, coniferous forests, and marine and freshwater biomes. Throughout the journey the adaptations that different organisms make to their environment are highlighted."--Conteneur
