Sam is a conservation biologist interested in how animals respond to environmental change. Sam is something of a details person and likes to find out about the processes operating in animal populations and how they respond to environmental changes caused by things like disturbance, habitat fragmentation or logging. He does a lot of field-based rese ...

Prof Yvonne Buckley

I work on the management of processes which threaten ecosystem function and biodiversity. In particular, the population dynamics, spread, evolution and herbivore interactions of both native and invasive plants. I have used a wide range of approaches to tackle these problems, from the development of simple, relatively abstract models, through to sys ...

Sean uses spatially explicit models of spread to explore how localised initial plant populations become large, widespread, invasive populations. He investigates the phenomenon of plant spread on both homogeneous and heterogeneous landscapes. Sean is also interested in complex dynamic landscapes where the weed and the landscape interact with each ot ...

Through his PhD research, Brendan is investigating the question of when it is more cost effective to protect pristine vs degraded ecosystems in order to protect biodiversity and ecosystem services. This is essential knowledge for anyone wishing to optimise the allocation of scarce conservation funding.
