Baltimore Ecosystem Study
The Urban Resources Initiative (URI) is partnering with social and natural scientists from the Baltimore Ecosystem Study (BES) on research to understand the ecological and social roles of small urban parks as part of a collaborative project with the Baltimore Ecosystem Study (BES) and the Central Arizona-Phoenix (CAP) Long-term Ecological Research sites. The project combines social and natural science methods to study biological and human-generated forces affecting vegetation and wildlife in urban parks, focusing on how these impacts vary by social, cultural and economic characteristics of surrounding neighborhoods.
