The Philadelphia Field Station will foster collaboration and generate, deliver, and share science to sustain the health and diversity of natural systems and enhance community quality of life within the urban landscape.
The Philadelphia Field Station spatial and thematic focus is on urban and suburban communities within the greater Philadelphia region. The Field Station footprint includes the 13-county Plant One Million campaign boundaries (left), but extends beyond and incorporates a landscape-scale perspective that links urban and rural communities within the entire Delaware River Basin (below).
All of the research undertaken at or in affiliation with the Philadelphia Field Station will contribute to a holistic, landscape-scale assessment of ecosystem health which in turn will connect to human health, safety, education, and wellbeing.
- Urban forest health & forest structure
- Air quality & climate
- Water quality & quantity
