In this first episode, Professor Richard Fortey is on Hawaii to investigate how life colonizes a newly born island. The most remote island group in the world, by some estimates only one new species successfully colonized Hawaii every 35,000 years- yet the Hawaiian Islands teem with a great diversity of life. In search of the evolutionary secrets of how one species becomes many, Prof. Fortey encounters beautiful honeycreeper birds whose evolution rivals that of the Darwin's famous finches; carnivorous caterpillars who now can't eat leaves; and giant silversword plants that thrive in parched volcanic soil at 10,000 feet up.
