PhD Opportunity: Spatial simulation of caribou landscapes in the Northwest Territories.

18 April 2016

As part of a multidisciplinary study of vegetation, fire and permafrost dynamics, the successful applicant will develop spatial simulation models to forecast the abundance and spatial distribution of caribou habitat in relation to climate change, fire and human landuse in the Northwest Territories. The models are to be implemented in SpaDES, a new R package for spatial simulation and individual based modelling. Part of the thesis will involve integration of the team’s research findings, scenario development and the implementation of simulation experiments. However, the student will also be expected to conduct applied research in one related topic (e,g, vegetation dynamics, caribou movement) according to their interest, the results of which would be included as a model component. The qualifications are strong quantitative skills and an interest in spatial simulation independent of disciplinary background. A high level of written communication skills in English is essential. Programming experience (e.g. in R, Python) would be an asset, but modelling courses are available in the lab.

We offer a 3yr PhD scholarship at C$23,000/yr. The student will be co-supervised by Steve Cumming, Université Laval, Québec QC and Eliot McIntire, Pacific Forestry Centre, Victoria BC. By preference, the position will be tenable at Laval, with at least one semester as a visiting student at the Pacific Forestry Centre. However, we may be able to accommodate exceptional candidates who prefer to study in Western Canada. There will be opportunities to participate in the 2016 or 2017 summer field season. The position will start September 2016. Applications received before May 9th will receive full consideration.

The language of instruction at Université Laval is French, but theses may be written in English. Québec City is well known for its exceptional outdoor recreational opportunities, natural beauty, historical interest and vibrant cultural life. The francophone cultural environment provides non-francophone students an excellent opportunity to develop or improve French language skills

Applicants should submit by email a short statement of interest, a sample of their scientific writing, a current CV, and the names of three references. For further information, contact the undersigned:

TEDx talk: Is Nature Dog Eat Dog

In this talk, I present the latest research about how important positive effects are for global biodiversity. This talk draws heavily from the paper I published this summer with Dr. Alex Fajardo as a Tansley Review in New Phytologist. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8wt4GaYmGU&noredirect=1

Commentary on the costs of helping your competitors

A recent piece by Schob et al. 2014 New Phytologist, showed that plants in high elevation sites that facilitate their neighbours actually incur costs, i.e., the ones being helped don't turn around and help right back. This creates a sticky situation evolutionarily... see my comentary McIntire 2014 New Phytologist (link coming)

_________________________________

McIntire, E.J.B. and Fajardo, A. (2014) Facilitation as a ubiquitous driver of biodiversity. The New Phytologist (Tansley Review) In this article, we show how critical and ubiquitous positive effects are for global biodiversity. We present a conceptual framework that unifies the disparate mechanisms of facilitation into a single phemonenon: all species change their environment and that new environment will promote a different suite of species than the purely abiotic one. Furthermore, to understand the contribution of positive effects on biodiversity, we discuss how a trait-based approach can help us distinguish some of the "difficult" situations. While biodiversity is, in part, created by species exploiting many niches, many niches are available to exploit only because species create them.

When submitting a paper to Science and Nature, the authors are required to come up with incredibly short descriptions of their research. We decided to take this to the next level, joining the ancient Japanese poetry form with science abstracts -- the Haiku : 5, 7, 5 syllables.

Prospective Students

I am looking for motivated MSc, PhD students or Postdoctoral Fellows with scholarships (NSERC, FQRNT or otherwise) to work on one of several projects:

  1. A wide variety of spatial ecological questions that can fit in with my current projects (see below), or be a development of a new project.
  2. Simulation for conservation. I have been using individual based models for several years for the conservation and management of endangered species (Wolves in the Alps, Butterflies in Oregon), or species of management concern (Goshawks). I am looking for a student who in interested in further developing these models as the conservation questions continue to evolve.
  3. Movement and population dynamics of Elk-Wolf system. I am involved in a multi-year, multiple stakeholder project about movement and population dynamics of an Elk-Wolf system in Idaho. 15 years ago, wolves were reintroduced to vast Idaho wilderness and the populations have exploded and are now near saturation. Elk populations have had to deal with this new predator. The project I am looking to recruit on touches on understanding movement and how it scales up to population dynamics in a predator-prey system. There will be a large potential component of adapting an existing individual based model of wolves to the local context. Thus, I am looking for a student with experience and interest in dynamic models and simulation modeling.
  4. Mechanisms of forest change in mountain ecosystems. Mountain systems are particularly sensitive to changing climate because of the rapid changes in ecosystem types through space. Many of the changes occur through a combination of biotic (e.g., facilitation) and abiotic (e.g., temperature) factors. Because of this, predicting changes in these ecosystems requires a combined understanding of the influence of these factors, in situ.
  5. Conservation of Patagonian ecosystems. Patagonia, Chile, has had a large portion of its forest ecosystems converted to pasture land, to the detriment of carbon storage, wildlife species, and native ecosystems, in general. Conservation and restoration of these systems will require a combined approach of ecology, policy, and carbon/habitat/wildlife modeling.

Letter for prospective students

RESEARCH

My research interests lie in applied ecology, conservation and forecasting of a broad array of ecosystems and species. Specifically, I am interested in using modern quantitative techniques to understand the natural complexity of ecosystems, and ultimately, to allow forecasting of organisms and ecosystem processes. I use a variety of quantitative techniques, including Hierarchical Bayes, Spatial Analysis, Landscape Simulation Modeling, Structural Equation Modeling, and Non-Linear Models to achieve the best ecological inference from ecological data. Through each of the systems I study, I strive to understand the ecological processes and to test this understanding by forecasting.

During my Ph.D.

I worked on issues related to Natural Disturbances in South-Central British Columbia, Canada:

  • What are the boundaries of wildfires and mountain pine beetle outbreaks like? In other words, how wide are they, how complex are they, how heterogeneous are they?
  • How important is this boundary complexity for a variety of the ecosystem? This includes, vegetation, coarse woody debris, and understory structure.
  • What is the meaning of a disturbance in a disturbance-driven ecosystem? How do we define stability in ecosystems whose turnover is many centuries?

Prior to my Ph.D.

I worked on alpine ecosystems in Yukon, Canada, examining plant-herbivore dynamics of collared pikas, with David Hik.
I also examined the spatial patterns of disease infestation of wetland plants in northern fens, Quebec, Canada, with Marcia Waterway and Martin Lechowicz.
