Biography

Professor Yvonne Buckley is the Professor of Zoology at Trinity College Dublin. She is the co-champion of the multidisciplinary "Smart & Sustainable Planet" research theme and an international partner of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions headquartered in Australia. Prof. Buckley has research interests in determining the future of how we live well on the planet, environmental decision making, plant ecology and quantitative ecology. She leads a team of post-doctoral researchers, PhD, and undergraduate research students seeking to understand the fundamental drivers of animal and plant population processes in a rapidly changing world. She uses these discoveries to provide support for environmental decisions in the areas of biodiversity conservation, invasive species management and habitat restoration. Prof. Buckley's research combines data collection in the lab, field or from the literature with quantitative modeling techniques that enable analysis and prediction of responses of populations to underlying drivers and manipulations. Prof. Buckley is interested in the development of ecology as a discipline, she is the founding chair of a learned society for ecologists in Ireland and serves on editorial boards for two top ecology journals. She is also active in mentoring women in higher education at all levels, including through the Aurora program. Professor Buckley is originally from North Cork in Ireland and received a B.A in Biology (1st class) from Oxford University and a Ph.D. from Imperial College London (2002). She has worked at Imperial College London and the University of Queensland, Australia before joining Trinity College Dublin in 2014.

Research Expertise

Description

I lead a team of post-doctoral researchers, PhD and undergraduate research students seeking to understand the fundamental drivers of animal and plant population processes in a rapidly changing world. I use these discoveries to provide practical solutions in the areas of biodiversity conservation, invasive species management and habitat restoration. I use a wide range of tools and approaches that combine data collection in the lab, field or from the literature with cutting edge quantitative modelling techniques that enable analysis and prediction of responses of populations to underlying drivers and manipulations. I am a global leader in comparative plant population dynamics and invasive plant management and emerging as a leader in predicting responses of populations to climate change.

Projects

  • Title
    • POPSTAR-SFI: Plant population strategy and response to the environment
  • Summary
    • Plant populations are essential for human survival and wellbeing and a critical component of biodiversity. In order to manage environmental disruptions, and adapt to environmental change, we need to develop general predictions of the ecological and evolutionary responses of plant populations to the environment. I will apply my expertise across population biology, invasion biology and quantitative ecology to provide a fundamental and integrated understanding of how traits and environment jointly determine life history strategy and population performance, across and within species. POPSTAR-SFI will produce a new synthesis of spatially extensive population ecology using the largest number of species and, within a single species, at the most spatially extensive scale ever undertaken. I will develop predictive models of environmental drivers of demography, which together with my expertise in environmental decision theory can be used to inform management solutions for food security and biodiversity conservation worldwide. POPSTAR-SFI will enable experimental validation of the empirical patterns observed on the affect of the environment and traits on plant life history strategy and population performance. The theory, data synthesis and tools developed in POPSTAR-SFI will significantly advance spatial population ecology and enable spatially explicit predictions of the effects of global change on plant populations.

  • Title
    • GEODEM: Geography of Demography: modelling plant population responses to global habitat patterns
  • Summary
    • Mankind is profoundly altering the environments in which plant and animal populations live. An era of such massive habitat rearrangements requires ecologists to take new approaches to increase our understanding of species distribution and likelihood of persistence worldwide. Improved ecological models of range-wide persistence and response to the simultaneous threats of climate change, habitat destruction and landscape reconfiguration are required to inform management of biodiversity at large scales. GEODEM brings together global datasets of plant distribution and demography to gain insight into how the geographic configuration of habitats affects growth, survival and reproduction of more than 500 plant species worldwide. The project has two main objectives: 1. Geographic Range Pattern Analysis: Using species distribution models and global spatial statistics tools to quantify and compare spatial patterns of suitable environmental conditions across species' biogeographic ranges. 2. Landscape Demography: Testing how the spatial arrangement of suitable habitat within the geographic space can inform population responses to environmental gradients. The fellow will be supervised by and collaborate with world leaders in spatial ecology in Ireland and other European countries to accomplish her goals. The prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship will enable her to develop expertise in currently disparate areas of species distribution modelling and demography and place her in a unique position to make significant contributions to the urgent problem of population persistence at large scales during this era of global change. It will enable the fellow to build an independent research program in Europe after gaining research experience in top universities in Canada and Australia.

  • Title
    • POP-CHANGE Predicting and managing plant population response in human altered ecosystems
  • Summary
    • Humans are rapidly changing the environments that plant and animal populations exist in. In order to make predictions about which populations will persist, which we are likely to lose and where to best place our management efforts for biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services we need a fundamental understanding of how the environment affects population growth and decline in human altered ecosystems. The proposed research seeks to leverage existing data-sets on plant population dynamics and spatial locations to gain insight into how abiotic conditions affect the growth, survival and reproduction of 162 species of plants worldwide. New data will be collected to extensively sample the population dynamics of a widespread plant species to develop novel models of habitat suitability for population growth at the global scale. Statistical models will be developed from existing data on 86 plant species at >40 sites worldwide to determine whether plant population responses to nutrient addition can be predicted using known demographic attributes, these models will be tested using new data from approx. 30 sites worldwide. Ultimately we need to use our knowledge of ecology together with the efficacy and costs of management to determine cost effective interventions to achieve environmental or societal goals. I will use demographic data on >20 plant species together with new management data to develop comparative models of cost effective management strategies for problematic invasive plants. I will use these interlinked objectives to develop predictive models of plant population dynamics under altered environmental conditions, predictions of population response to nutrient addition and general guidelines on how best to manage damaging pest species. The CIG will enable this research programme to be undertaken at a global scale and put European research at the forefront of mitigating the threats to biodiversity and ecosystem services.

  • Summary
    • Despite facing the sixth global mass extinction of species, most conservation management is unevaluated and inefficient. The ARC Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions (CEED) will provide international research leadership in tackling the complex problems of environmental management and monitoring in an uncertain world. Working through six Australian and six international organisations, the Centre will forge new approaches and tools from ecology, mathematics, statistics, economics and the social sciences. It will lead the world in developing and delivering predictive models and decision-making approaches to improve outcomes in conservation management, habitat restoration, spatial planning and threat adaptation under a changing climate.
