Comment: This class is currently titled: Taxomony, Growth, and Structures. The class is much more focused on evolution and taxonomy than the title suggests. Expect to learn a lot about phylogenies and different controversies over naming. The lab component of this class is much more useful if you care about learning plants. However, when tested on plants, you are only given a leaf sample and maybe a cone, but you don't get to see the whole tree. This made the tests rather difficult, especially for pines. The GSI, Rainbow, is fantastic and you'll probably learn more from her than from Dodd. Dodd is a nice guy but needs to change the way he advertises this course.
