Riverside, Ca –

"Mary Droser, a professor of geology and the chair of the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of California, Riverside, is one of the scientists featured in “First Life with David Attenborough,” which will air on the Discovery Channel Sunday, Oct. 24, at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m.

The program documents how nature’s first animals evolved and ultimately gave rise to the modern animals we know today. Blending state of the art CGI with an array of exotic locations, Sir David Attenborough, a world-renowned naturalist, will provide viewers of the program with detailed explanations of the development of the digestive tract, how some species evolved to have more than 5,000 lenses as eyes, and how the existence of a “living fossil” could very well be likely."
