Research - How do the services provided by evolving urban ecosystems affect human outcomes and behavior, and how does human action (responses) alter patterns of ecosystem structure and function, and ultimately, urban sustainability, in a dynamic environment?
annual precip: < 400 mm mean; annual soil T: Hyperthermic: > 22C; Ecoregion: warm subtropical; Slope (%): 2 - 5 %; elevation: 200 - 500 m; geological material: age of rock from Precambrian to Quaternary, Precambrian and Tertiary granitic rocks are common, Abundant volcanic rocks, rhyolitic to basaltic, and Mesozoic to Quaternary. Gneiss and schist, all mostly Precambrian and Mesozoic. Limestone, sandstone, quartzite and shale are mostly Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic in age.
Data available - soil solid: pH, acidity, OC, N, macro- and micronutrients, bulk density, chemical contaminatants; vegetation: above ground biomass
