Community EcologyZoology5945B. MengeWinter (alternate years)Yhttp://catalog.oregonstate.edu/CourseList.aspx?subjectcode=Z&level=grad&campus=corvallisGreat class! It's mainly marine based, but there's a lot of opportunity for discussion on ecological theory and conservation.
6
Landscape EcologyForest ScienceM. BettsFallYSome basic concepts, but small class size and a wide range of tools and techniques presented in labsI took this class my 1st semester and didn't feel like I got much out of it at the time. However, a few terms later I found myself reading papers and thinking that without this course I probably wouldn't have understood them. It paid off in the long term.I enjoyed the course, and Matt provides an excellent selection of foundation papers in landscape ecology. However, I am a little reluctant to give the class a strong recommendation since the labs need to be updated, and your experience in the course is going to be largely dictated by the other students in the class (lots of discussion).

Trophic CascadesFish&Wildlife5472-3 (additional project for 3 credits)Bill RippleSpringYhttp://catalog.oregonstate.edu/CourseDetail.aspx?subjectcode=FW&coursenumber=547Taught with the Forestry Science department. Very interesting class focusing on studying trophic cascades from the bottom up and top down. Also, taught by one of the top reseachers of trophic cascade theory.I didn't get much out of this class, it's very basic. It's a very easy course and very repetitive.

16
Conservation Biology of WildlifeFish&Wildlife5633D. RobyFall (alternate years 2013)Nmoved to winter in 2016Not sure I got much out of this, but I'd already taken a class using the same textbook before. If you've never had a conservation class, this may be worth it. I thought the discussions were fantastic at least. Also, be warned that tests are mostly on rote memorization.

Advanced Forest Community EcologyForest Ecosystems & Society5464M. CannonSpringYhttp://catalog.oregonstate.edu/CourseDetail.aspx?subjectcode=FES&coursenumber=546Fundamental concepts of community including disturbance, diversity and succession. Strong emphasis on field skills and data interpretation. Saturday field trip required. Lec/lab.
21
Ecological RestorationFish&Wildlife, Forest Ecosystems & Society4454B. Kauffman, C. EisenbergSpringCourse not all that useful to grads in its current form. Heavy undergraduate focus with cursory review of topics like plant succession. Graduate groups of 5 students create an ecological site assesment/restoration proposal (~25 pages) that could be worked into an actual submission to a granting agency.

Success in the College ClassroomMicrobiology6992J. TrempeWinter?YThis is a special topics course, but someone blogged about it: http://cemigh.wordpress.com/2011/01/28/teaching-philosophy-part-2/

This seminar-type course is designed to help you become a more effective teacher in the sciences (or in any field). Well worth the time. -- Addendum: one of the best classes I've taken at OSU as someone who hopes to teach at the college level. It focuses on teaching adult learner (college students)
31
Theories of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education*GRAD5603J. WhiteFall*All of these starred GRAD courses are part of the Graduate Certificate in College and University Teaching (GCCUT) offered by OSU to those interested in getting diving into how to effectively teach adult learners. http://gradschool.oregonstate.edu/gccutI really enjoyed this course (the first one in the GCCUT series) because it offered a wide array of information on research into how people learn and how to translate that into effective teaching strategies. I highly recommend for those planning on continuing on to be professors! I really like knowing some of the education jargon and being able to voice my opinion on different teaching styles and I feel like it will help me in future job interviews. For as long as I'm here, I'm happy to talk to you about the GCCUT program (email allyson.jackson@oregonstate.edu)

Introduction to Population GeneticsGenetics5303M. Blouin?YA good overview of the class, but its up to you as a graduate student to get into the detailsBlouin basically goes through the book chapter by chapter. Could be so much better. I love pop gen and think it is exciting, but this class was boring. Recommended if you need a refresher in popgen, but be prepared for some frustration.
