Curriculum Vitae


Dr. Alastair Harborne is an ecologist primarily interested in coral reef fishes, with a particular focus on the impacts of environmental change on these fishes and aiding their conservation.

Research Areas

Much of Dr. Harborne's current work, in both the Caribbean and Pacific, is examining the natural processes and anthropogenic impacts that control the abundance, ecology, and behaviour of reef fishes, and integrating this work into food web models to provide a comprehensive understanding of tropical communities and the threats to their health.
