Found this lecture really brutal to go through... For an hour and a half of this sort of material with no break, was a bit much for me. Prof is really monotone, and seems a bit disorganized. I found the midterm and final difficult, but ended up doing much better than I expected on both. It is a lot of material, but that is to be expected with a 1.00 credit course. Online assignments were easy. Overall, I didn't really enjoy this class while I was taking it, but the pure amount of stuff I knew after was well worth it. You gain a pretty good understanding of how all the major systems work, and for getting a full credit for what didn't feel like much more effort than is required for a .5 credit course, I would recommend it.

For a third year, full credit course, it really wasn't difficulty, per se. I wouldn't call it a bird course though because there is a lot in physiology. I took it when it was offered as a two-lecture a week for one semester for the first time. We got this 3 to 1 combined textbook with messed up page number and in black-and-white of course. (At least it wasn't expansive) Some complained about his monotone, but I guess this is too general for his research. His lecture notes are okay, and those supplementry notes are very useful. Assignments were set up like quizzes in another site without time restrains. So if you have time for it, you can get a lot out of this course. I didn't like how there wasn't enough class time devoted to it, considering the large amount of materials. But I guess we're expected to complete more independent learning at that point. And he's more than willing to explain concepts, after class and online.

Birds do exist at UOGUELPH, this course is a good example.
