February highlights from Ecological Society of America publications
Date:2/22/2013

3 is a partnership of Baltimore's Parks & People Foundation, the Cary Institute for Ecosystem Studies, the USDA Forest Service, Baltimore's municipal Department of Public Works, and neighborhood volunteers. A paper out this month in Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment details the 930 acre test case, spread over 11 densely urban neighborhoods of west and southwest Baltimore. The authors describe both difficulties (litter, resistance to native plants, unexpectedly complicated hydrology) and successes (notable reduction in phosphorus and nitrogen contamination, better school performance, more residents reporting outside activities). Read more about Baltimore's Watershed 263 experiment in socioecology at ESA's blog, EcoTone.

Socioecological revitalization of an urban watershed. Guy W Hager, Kenneth T Belt, William Stack, Kimberly Burgess, J Morgan Grove, Bess Caplan, Mary Hardcastle, Desiree Shelley, Steward TA Pickett, and Peter M Groffman. Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment 2013 11:1, 28-36.
