Dr. Martin made this highly informative class a joy to watch. :0)
Excellent overview of pre-human extinctions and their relationship to the current human-initiated 6th extinction.
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!
Bravo! A fascinating course, thank you. Dr. Martin speaks clearly and informatively with humour and insight. So many interesting subjects covered under the umbrella of "extinctions".
