MontanaPBS will broadcast an episode of the popular “NOVA” science program that explores the research and discoveries of UM biology Professor Doug Emlen at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 22.

The episode, “Extreme Animal Weapons,” is based on an hourlong documentary starring Emlen that originally aired on the BBC in April. Both episodes were inspired by Emlen’s 2014 book “Animal Weapons: The Evolution of Battle.”
