Although the class was entitled "Humid Tropics," implying that the subject matter would cover a wide variety of habitats and ecosystems around the globe, Hindery confined his classes to the examination of the Chiquitano Forest of Bolivia and its devastation at the hands of oil companies. The fact that we didn't even cover what the humid tropics ARE disturbed me a bit. This class turned out to be a quarter-long discussion of Hindery's own graduate research and forum for his own ranting, and it shows - presentations are poorly organized and narrow in scope, frequently showing only a skewed perspective of the problem at hand. While the class is ultimately rather easy, the frustration of having to hear about that damn Chiquitano Forest every day may start to wear you out a little, especially when you were hoping to learn what the Registrar page said you'd be learning.
