The Everglades, Florida Bay, and coral reefs of the Florida Keys : an ecosystem sourcebook / edited by James W. Porter, Karen G. Porter ; photographs by Clyde Butcher.
Boca Raton, Fla. : CRC Press, 2002.
Physical Description:
1000 pages : illustrations (some color), maps ; 26 cm
General Note:
"This volume of contributed papers is the outgrowth of a special symposium, "Linkages Between Ecosystems: The South Florida Hydroscape," convened at a jointly sponsored meeting of the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography and The Ecological Society of America ... The joint meetings, titled "The Land-Water Interface: Science for a Sustainable Biosphere," was held in St. Louis, June 7-12, 1999"--Foreword.
General topics discussed in this volume include: Florida Everglades hydrology and nutrients, biota, and ecosystem modeling; Florida Bay water movements and chemistry, and biota; Florida Reef water movements and nutrients, and reef biota; policy, management and conservation.
