Brian Enquist

Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

Brian Enquist's research focuses on the connection between attributes of the individual (anatomical and physiological) with macroscopic (population, community, and biogeographic) behavior. In particular he is interested in identifying the critical mechanisms operating throughout multiple scales of biological organization. His current work deals with plant macroecology, focusing on the use of allometric scaling as an approach toward drawing mechanistic connections between the individual and larger scale processes.
