Abstract

The Water and Watersheds program has made significant and lasting contributions to the basic understanding of the complex ecological system of Baltimore, MD. Funded at roughly the same time as the urban Long- Term Ecological Research (LTER) project in Baltimore, the Water and Watersheds grant and the LTER grant together established the Baltimore Ecosystem Study (BES) in 1997. This joint project took advantage of three conspicuous stream catchments and the direct harbor drainage in metropolitan Baltimore. Not only the watersheds themselves, but the community and political interest in those watersheds were crucial to the success and application of our project.
