Description:

This two-minute radio program focuses on the uniqueness, evolutionarily speaking, of manatees and the taxonomic order to which they belong. The program offers a brief overview of the manatee's diet and habitat. A scientist then contrasts the low species diversity in the manatee's order, the Sirenia, with that of the primates. She also points out which animal is the manatee's closest relative. Underwater recordings of manatees are the background for this archived Pulse of the Planet program. A transcript is also provided.
