Excellent lecturer and selection of articles. Lecturer was very engaging and clearly is very passionate about the subject of this course.
Great course for the non-professional student- keeps the subject matter discussions light and contemporary. Especially loved the idea of ecological proxy, which I had never heard before!
Excellent overview of pre-human extinctions and their relationship to the current human-initiated 6th extinction.
The professor, plus the course syllabus, and the way in which they were both presented exceeded all my hopes and expectations for learning as a beginning geology student major.
