I took EEB 116
I found this professor to be quite adorable because he was always excited about the topic of conservation biology. He always came to every guest lecture and listened attentively to them. However, he wasn’t at his OH when I tried to go one day. And he doesn’t hold review sessions like Wayne does.
His lecturing style is pretty much all pictures. He talks a lot about various animals in different parts of the world, and shows many pictures with them. Just make sure you write notes about important adaptive biology facts when it comes to these pictures. Because of all of the pictures, I don’t recommend printing the lecture slides just because it’ll just take up way too much ink and money. His lecturing style is similar to Wayne, in that it is also disorganized. But I did notice that I was able to stay attentive in Rundel’s lectures more just because he talked more about interesting biodiversity around the world.
For the exams, there will always be a guest lecture question. The exams are short answer, 3 exams, all worth the same amount of points. So it’s almost like there is no final. The papers discussed in discussion are not on the exams. The short answer questions tend to be more about the concepts that you can write about in a few sentences. The 2nd midterm had more about solving a problem with the equations given. Either way, the averages tend to be high on all three exams, and the exams tend to be easier than other EEB classes. But they are still challenging, and a lot for a short amount of time.
I did not find this class to be an easy A, but I also did not find this to be he hardest class. If you put in all the memorizing, you’re fine. But there’s a lot of reading for discussion, so it’s easy to get behind along with your other classes.
