By the end of the present century, more than 80% of humans are expected to live in urban centers. This shift away from rural and agrarian living highlights the growing importance of urban ecosystems, as well as these landscapes' implications for ecology and sustainability. 

In this episode of BioScience Talks, we're joined by Dr. Steward Pickett of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, who describes the theoretical underpinnings of the long-running Baltimore Ecosystem Study, as well as the ways in which knowledge gained from this research is translated into real-world sustainability improvements.
