The Life on Earth class listserv will be your primary source of information
on last-minute changes in the lecture, workshop, and fieldtrip schedules,
and its a very convenient way to set up study-groups for the exams and contact
the people in your workshops. You can use it to ask general questions of
the TAs and Prof., too.
You have to have an email account, and that's easy because everyone registered
is eligible https://account.arizona.edu/.
You can use email to schedule meetings with any of us, or you can use email simply to
ask questions of clarification about assignments or about lecture materials, etc.
The TAs and Prof will answer you on the same day as long as we're in our offices.
