Professor Richard Fortey (pictured) investigates why islands are natural laboratories of evolution, in this three-part series for BBC Four.

Taking a closer look at the natural process beyond ‘the survival of the fittest’, Professor Richard Fortey studies the life cycle of islands, from their birth and colonization, through the flowering of abundant new species, to the changes an island endures as it grows old and nears its end. As he searches for the rules of island evolution Fortey encounters wild lemurs in the rainforest of Madagascar, acid-resistant shrimps in the rock pools of Hawaii and giant wolf spiders in Madeira.

In the first episode, Hawaii: A New Eden, Fortey is in Hawaii to investigate how life colonizes a newly-born island. As one of the most remote island groups in the world, it’s believed that only one new species successfully colonized Hawaii every 35,000 years. In search of the evolutionary secrets of how one species becomes many, Fortey encounters beautiful honeycreeper birds, whose evolution rivals that of 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.
