Life Force is a celebration of the power of evolution; an exploration of the forces that shape life in all its unexpected glory. Australia is a floating laboratory with landscapes ranging from tropical rainforest to arid desert. Its climate has changed so dramatically that all inhabitants were forced to adapt...or die. This land of extremes has over 200 species of pouched marsupials. Some are tiny, only drinking the nectar of flowers; but others are vicious...tearing apart a carcass in minutes, and some can even fly! But the parched wasteland in the centre of the continent hosts the most amazing survival strategies of all. What type of marsupial could possibly flourish in Australia’s arid death zone?
