- E-fossils, E-skeletons, and E-Lucy, digital libraries of fossil and skeletal material relevant to human evolution.
- The PBS and Nova Evolution sites
- Timetree, which allows you to search the tree of life for evolutionary divergences

This channel is a truly awesome resource

BUT OH GODDAMNIT... I just spent the last three weeks getting 3/4ths done with indexing and annotating a ~30,000-40,000 word post with 350+ links to several thousands of hours of video and this channel has just over half of it. Oh well, it will just have to get bigger, there is so much good science programing now on the web.
