Dr. Pickett's projects relate to the role of spatial heterogeneity in community and landscape structure and dynamics. Specific projects include research on urban ecosystems, function of landscape boundaries, and plant community succession. The question motivating all these studies is, "How does the spatial heterogeneity of a system or area control system function and change?"
Post-agricultural plant community succession is being studied in permanent plots in central New Jersey.
The Cary Institute has taken a lead role in developing a program aimed at understanding urban ecosystems, one of Earth's fastest growing environments.
Director of the Baltimore Ecosystem Study Steward Pickett discusses how urban ecology can make our cities greener, cleaner, and healthier for all.
