    • Strange life forms have evolved in the peat swamps of Southeast Asia, harsh habitats once thought to be devoid of life.

      Eleanor Adamson, fish researcher at the Natural History Museum, introduces some recent expedition finds, including the world's smallest fish. They have evolved to survive in water that is at least 100 times more acidic than rainwater. Many are able to breathe air.
