Lucy Hutyra, a professor at Boston University, stands in a field of stinging nettles while recording urban biomass measurements for the Boston Urban Long-term Research Area Exploratory (ULTRA-Ex) project. ULTRA-Ex is a National Science Foundation (NSF)-supported research platform that investigates the space-time variation in metropolitan Bostons carbon metabolism. NSF offers these awards for projects that support interdisciplinary research on the dynamic interactions between people and natural ecosystems in urban settings. The program is investigating both natural and human influences on Bostons carbon metabolism. To learn more, visit the program's website Here.
