There is a critical need for fundamental science that supports the sustainable management of ecosystem services and informs sustainable policy making. Rapidly growing mid-sized urban population centers are altering proximal ecosystem services on which these communities depend, a trend of global significance.
MILES is an NSF/EPSCoR-funded project to advance the understanding of feedbacks between social and ecological systems and ecosystem services in mid-sized cities in the face of climate change and urban growth.
