Woolly Mammoth: Secrets from the Ice

Woolly Mammoth: Secrets from the Ice


Alice Roberts explores the natural history of the Ice Age mammals that once roamed across what is now Europe and Asia. Detailed information about their lives has been gleaned from carcasses preserved in the Siberian permafrost, and the anatomist meets scientists using genetic, chemical and molecular tests to reveal the adaptations that allowed mammoths to evolve from tropical animals to creatures capable of surviving extreme cold.
