    Nature [#3104H] Meet The Coywolf The coywolf, a mixture of western coyote and eastern wolf, is a hauntingly beautiful carnivore found increasingly on the streets of North American cities. Its appearance is very recent -- within the last 90 years -- in evolutionary terms, a blip in time. The story of how it came to be begins in Canada but by no means ends there. It is a tale of how quickly adaptation and evolution can occur, especially when humans interfere.

    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#1503H] Nature Vs. Nurture For hundreds of years, people have been arguing the issue of Nature vs. Nurture. Are we the result of our youthful experiences or the genes we inherited from our ancestors? Recently, scientists have come to the conclusion that our genes interact with our environment and we change constantly throughout our lives. Our biology is actually altered by our environment. To take a look at this question, Burt talked to a group of people who had grown up in the structured culture of Taiwan and in their early years moved to the more open culture of the United States. Among the people Burt talks to are Steve Chen co-inventor of YouTube and Justin Lin who makes the Fast and Furious films. Burt then travels to Taiwan to take a look at what influenced their youth. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
