Biography:

Harriet Allen is a Senior Lecturer and a member of the Geography Department's Environmental Systems and Processes research group. She is a physical geographer with a range of research interests which focus on modelling the vegetation structure of Mediterranean ecosystems, the response of ecosystems to environmental change, palaeoecological evidence for Holocene and contemporary environmental change. These areas of interest are all firmly located within Mediterranean environments.

Current projects include:

  • Mediterrranean wood pastures for biodiversity - making the lynx
  • Modelling the landscape ecology of Mediterranean shrubland ecosystems.
  • Use of airborne LiDAR to characterise vegetation communities.
  • Use of multisensor ariborne data to model Mediterranean sclerophyllous vegetation communities (Crete and Portugal).
  • Holocene and contemporary vegetation dynamics of Mediterranean ecosystems
