How Did Life Emerge Here?

The tip of a new volcanic island appears above the surface of the ocean. Solidified black lava gleams in the sunshine. Although it may not be obvious, the processes that will turn this new piece of land into a tropical paradise have already begun. This video segment adapted from NOVA chronicles an island's transformation from a barren lava flow to a rich ecosystem.
