Who is James Brown?

James Hemphill Brown is an American biologist and academic.

He is an ecologist, and as of 2004 a Distinguished Professor of Biology at the University of New Mexico. His work has focused on two distinct aspects of ecology: the population and community ecology of rodents and harvester ants in the Chihuahuan Desert and large-scale questions relating to the distribution of body size, abundance and geographic range of animals, leading to the development of the field of macroecology, a term that was coined in a paper Brown co-authored with Brian Maurer of Michigan State University.
