This class was pretty interesting, at the beginning much of it is similar to BIOL 2060 Ecology. The break down isn't too bad, a paper, group project midterm and final. The group project helps to boost your grade. Lectures are a little hard to keep up with if you haven't done the readings. It definitely helps to read the textbook because she goes over everything in lecture with minimal detail so you have to do the readings. Overall, not a bad class if you're interested in the content just make sure you do the readings because it helps out a lot for this class!

The Prof is definitely very approachable and is extremely nice. She really wants you to do well and admits when she doesn't have the best understanding of a topic and welcomes contribution from other students in the class to clera up questions that she cant. The essays are either very easy or very hard but you get to sign up for a topic so sign up carefully... There is a poster group project with a presentation in the atrium, very interesting process that I actually feel I benefited from a lot. The midterm seemed really easy until we got the marks back.. something like 30% of the class failed and most of teh class got a hair over 60. Even though I studied a lot and thought I would be getting an 85, I only got 70. This is really an interesting course if you have an interst in climate change, it really covers a lot, but it's certainly not an easy average boosting class.

When I took this course it did not seem to follow the course description...or any description for that matter. I often had no idea what was going on during lecture or how each lecture related to one another or to climate change. Based solely on the description, I think there is potential for this course to be good with a more organized professor.
