TOP REVIEWS FROM PALEONTOLOGY: EARLY VERTEBRATE EVOLUTION
Very informative course in a easy to learn teaching style I would highly recommend for anyone interested in the Paleontology field of work or just wanting to further their own learning
Difficult subject to get your head around but ultimately worth the effort. The teaching, as always with the University of Alberta's MOOCs, is second to none.
Short but amazing view on fish development with lots of technical terminologies. The very enjoyable way of learning. Thank you for this course and the whole series!
Excellently done and narrated course. It makes me want to know more about paleontology and evolution. It is amazing what diversity of life this planet has produced.
