Baltimore Ecosystem Study

Baltimore Ecosystem Study Long-Term Ecological Research project collects all the data and analysis of ecological research on the Balitomore urban area. The study address three primary questions, "What are the fluxes of energy and matter in urban ecosystems, and how do they change over the long term? How does the spatial structure of ecological, physical, and socio-economic factors in the metropolis affect ecosystem function? How can urban residents develop and use an understanding of the metropolis as an ecological system to improve the quality of their environment and their daily lives?" The site has extensive data sets going back many years for the Baltimore area.
