About this event

We invite you to celebrate the professorship of Thomas Buckley, PhD.

Event Date: Thursday 26 May, 2022

Event Time: 6:30-7:30pm

Location: Physics Lecture Theatre 1 (PLT1/303 G20)

Light Refreshments: 6:00-6:30 - Science Bldg 303, Lower Lift Lobby

New Zealand is globally famous for its high-profile vertebrate species. However, much less known are our terrestrial invertebrates, which are at least equal to the vertebrates in terms of their biological uniqueness. Amongst our invertebrates we see numerous and spectacular examples of different evolutionary processes. Drawing from his research Thomas will show how the diversity of terrestrial invertebrates reflects the evolution of the New Zealand landscape over tens of millions of years.

Thomas received his PhD from Victoria University of Wellington in 2000. After completing a Postdoctoral Fellowship at Duke University, he took up a position at Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research in 2001, where he is now Research Leader for Systematics Research. He currently holds a joint appointment at Waipapa Taumata Rau | University of Auckland and supervises postgraduate projects on the evolution of New Zealand invertebrates.
