  • Not an exclusive roster;
  • Operate in Baltimore region;
  • Relevant to sustainability;
  • Applicable to other cities.

how do existing bes long term data apply to the three conceptual areas
How do existing BES long-term data apply to the three conceptual areas?
  • Relate to LTER Core Areas:
    • Primary production
    • Flow of inorganic matter
    • Flow of organic matter
    • Population studies
    • Disturbance
  • Satisfy Additional Core Areas for Urban
    • Human land-cover change and ecosystem effects thereof;
    • Monitor effects of human-environmental interactions, and develop appropriate social-ecological data and analysis;
    • Integrate research with local K-12 educational systems.

how does each of the drivers relate to the other two
How does each of the drivers relate to the other two?
  • How does locational choice affect:
    • Biotic metacommunity structure and change?
    • The stream dis/continuum structure and processes?
  • How does the stream dis/continuum affect:
    • Biotic metacommunity structure and change?
    • Locational choices of households and firms?
  • How does the biotic metacommuinty affect:
    • The stream dis/continuum structure and processes?
    • Locational choices of households and firms?
  • N.B. Direct effects on each other; indirect through spatial heterogeneity.
