Fellow Emeritus, Botany

Biography

My researches commenced in the area of phytosociology, with papers spanning the spectrum of Irish native woodland communities. My floristic expertise extends to bryophytes and lichens as well as vascular plants. My year in France and four years in Jamaica expanded my horizons in both teaching and research. I have produced substantial studies on native forest vegetation in Jamaica and Venezuela. My interests in tree regeneration and forest dynamics have led me to establish detailed study plots in Irish and neotropical forests, with long-term monitoring planned or in progress. My interest in the biology of oak has led to a long-term experimental study of sessile oak (Quercus petraea) regeneration, and to collaboration with molecular systematists in elucidating the phylogeography of Irish oak. I have a special interest in epiphytic plant communities, both in Ireland and the New World Tropics. I spent a sabbatical term at Universidad de Los Andes, Merida, Venezuela, and shorter periods working at the Albrecht-von-Haller-Institut fuer Pflanzenwissenschaften, University of Goettingen, Germany; the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, U.K. and the Natural History Museum, London, U.K. I have co-supervised a major project on biodiversity in Irish plantation forestry (BIOFOREST), and have just obtained funding approval for a major follow-up project. My research has sought to promote the conservation of native vegetation and flora, focusing on the problems of invasive alien species, grazing management and deforestation. My interest in conservation extends to the broader landscape, and I am also involved in studies on the biodiversity of hedges and of semi-natural grasslands.

Research Expertise

Description

Dr Daniel Kelly's research area lies in woodland and forest ecology. Current work with colleagues and students in Ireland includes biodiversity in Irish plantation forestry (ground flora and epiphytes), tree regeneration and the effects of large herbivores on native woodland vegetation. He also has a particular interest in bryophytes (mosses and liverworts). He is an Editor of Watsonia (journal of the Botanical Society of the British Isles). His other field of research is in the New World Tropics, and he has organised and led expeditions in Jamaica, Venezuela, Guyana and Honduras. The focus of his tropical interests is on forest biodiversity, structure and dynamics and epiphytic plant communities.

Projects

  • Title
    • Grazing effects on plant and mollusc diversity in woodland and grassland habitats
  • Summary
    • This project examines the impacts of grazing on biodiversity in semi-natural grassland, scrub and woodland on limestone, focussed in the Burren region (Co. Clare). A network of experimental exclosures have been established. Responses are being monitored among the communities of vascular plants, bryophytes and molluscs.

  • Date To

  • Title
    • Managing for biodiversity in a range of Irish forest types
  • Summary
    • To assess the biodiversity of second rotation plantation forests; to make comparisons of diversity among different forest types, planted and semi-natural; to identify indicators of biodiversity for different forest types; to identify measures which may be used to enhance biodiversity in different forest types; and to compare Irish and British forest biodiversity.

  • Title
    • Species composition and diversity of woodlands and hedgerows in the County of Fingal
  • Summary
    • The project involves an extensive survey of hedge and broadleaved woodland vegetation in Fingal (northern Co. Dublin). We assess the contribution of each habitat to biodiversity in the county. We test the hypothesis that hedges form important refugia for woodland and other scarce species. Outputs will include recommendations for management of both hedges and woodland.

  • Title
    • Conservation and molecular characterisation of veteran oak (Quercus spp.) and ash (Fraxinus excelsior L.) trees.
  • Summary
    • Irish veteran trees represent a rare and endangered genetic resource. This project aims to analyse the genetic variation in veteran oak and ash for the first time, and to promote the conservation of these genotypes through a range of vegetative propagation methodologies.

    • Biodiversity survey of Cusuco National Park, Honduras
  • Summary
    • A multidisciplinary team is carrying out a survey of montane rain forest and associated habitats in Cusuco National Park, N.W. Honduras. The participating botanists have focussed on establishing and recording a network of permanent plots. These will provide an inventory of the forest composition; an assessment of the pattern of plant communities assocated with different habitats; and a baseline against which to monitor change

  • Summary
    • Objectives: To monitor changes in tree populations, tree regeneration, field layer and bryophyte layer inside and outside experimental exclosures in native oak and yew woodland and adjoining habitats. The broader aim is to promote informed management and conservation in Ireland's National Parks.
