Quarter Taken: Winter 2019 Submitted June 15, 2019 Grade Received: A

Class was co taught with Dr Brown. Both professors were good. Somethings were complicated but Wayne covered them fairly well. Exams were straightforward, though our second midterm was a time crunch. Still not too bad.

Section was mainly participating in group discussion and one presentation of an article.

Recommend taking it with Wayne. Class is interesting and not that difficult. You dont need to do textbook readings to do well, even though the professors mention it. I managed to get an A without buying the book. You only need lecture slides.

I am selling the textbook for this class for a good price. Message me if interested (619) 244-7318.
In regards to the class, I found it very interesting and super relevant and would recommend everyone to take this class or something similar.

I really enjoyed the topics covered in this class and Dr. Wayne and Dr. Brown were good lecturers. If you like open discussion style sections, you will really like the section. It is important to take good notes during lecture, especially on the examples mentioned. They were pretty lenient when grading the tests also. Take it!

Professor Wayne did not have a beneficial set up for this class. He spoke extremely quickly during his lectures not allowing you to grasp much during class. During the discussion sections, 2 students would have do a 15 minute presentation on a topic which made no sense because questions regarding lecture material are meant to be asked in discussions but the presentations would be on random articles that would not be tested on. His test reviews helped with tests but the exams were extremely long and even my TA agreed with them being way too long. The grading on the exams was awful since they would expect you to give an in depth precise answer which was difficult with the amount of time given and most the time if a certain word(s) in your paragraph long answer were not used a majority of the points would be reduced. Interesting topic but awful set up and teaching methods for the class

Professor Wayne is a really nice guy, and he's a very good lecturer. But he teaches this class expecting his students to know how to do LS4 work, such as calculate heritability and loss of heterozygosity. This isn't a requirement for the class, and I have never taken LS4 before, so on the second midterm when he asked us to bring calculators to class and expected us to know how to do these calculations, I was completely lost. He does curve the class which is nice. The reading he assigns us is very long and a lot of fluff with not a lot of content.
Lastly, we have weekly quizzes on articles that are read in discussion. They say that they won't ask questions that are extremely detailed, but THEY DO!
This class is not at all what I thought a conservation biology class was going to be about. It took me by surprise for sure.
