Allometry

Principal Investigators:

James H. Brown

I propose to spend my next sabbatical leave, due in the Fall Semester of 1999, at The National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS). The main reason for spending the sabbatical at NCEAS is that the center provides the best environment for the work I hope to accomplish. Foremost, I want to continue my collaborative work on allometry with Geoffrey B. West, a physicist at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and the Santa Fe Institute (SFI), and Brian Enquist, my recent Ph.D. student who has a NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship that he... more
