Dr Pam Berry

Senior Research Fellow and Geography Fellow (Mansfield College)

Academic Profile

Pam Berry has been involved in teaching Geography undergraduates in Oxford since 1978 and in particular papers on physical geography, biogeography and environmental issues. She is also involved in the Masters in Environmental Change and Management. She joined the Environmental Change Institute in 1992, a year after it was founded and is the Deputy Leader of its Terrestrial Ecology Group and a member of the School of Geography and Environment Biodiversity and Climate Adaptation research clusters.

She has held a number of editorial and advisory position including Book Review Editor for Journal of Biogeography and its sister publications and is on the Editorial Advisory Board of Environmental Science and Policy, CABI's Environmental Impact internet resource and the International Journal of Green Economics. She has been an international advisor for the University of British Columbia's GEOIDE project on “Future Visioning of Local Climate Change Scenarios with Integrated Geomatics/Visualization Systems, as well as being a Climate Change advisor to Earthwatch and an External advisor on the Board of Rothamsted's Centre for Bioenergy and Climate Change Strategy.

She has been invited to review research proposals or evaluate projects for the European Commission, European Science Foundation, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, NERC, DEFRA, Research Council of Norway's Environment 2015 Programme and Leverhulme Trust. She has also been an Expert reviewer for various chapters of the IPCC Assessment reports.


Current major research Interests

  • Global and regional scale integrated assessment of climate change impacts and adaptation
  • Impacts of mitigation and adaptation measures on biodiversity
  • Modelling the impacts of climate change on biodiversity, its vulnerability and the implications of conservation
  • Ecosystem services and environmental change, and in particular how the ecosystem approach relates to traditional approaches to conservation
  • Translation of science into policy through stakeholder engagement.
