The region from the southernmost point of the Florida peninsula, stretching south and west to the Dry Tortugas National Park, is one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems in the continental United States, and there's no better way to explore it than by s: Introduction The Everglades, Florida Bay, and Coral Reefs of the Florida Keys: An Ecosystem Sourcebook The central organizing theme of this book is that the ecosystems of South Florida are connected.

What evidence do we have that they are. While it seems obvious that they should be, defining and quantifying these connections is not simple. The Florida Keys are home to the most extensive living coral barrier reef system in North America, the third largest in the world. The reef track runs from Fowey Rocks offshore Miami to the Dry Tortugas.

It parallels the Florida Keys stretching for about miles. The Florida Keys ecosystem consists of diverse habitats, including mangroves, coral reefs and pinelands, that are rich in unique species. Humans, too, are part of the ecosystem, and their activities affect all habitats and the animals and plants that inhabit them.

Geology of the Florida Keys is an incredible compilation of information and documentation of the evolution of scientific thoughts. The book is an invaluable source for experts to beginning geologists, geophysicists, biologists, hydrologists, climatologists, environmentalists, tourists and other s: 2.

The Florida Keys holds the key to a unique national treasure - North America's only living coral barrier reef and the third longest barrier reef in the world.

Coral reefs contain more varieties of life than any other marine environment. They are part of a fragile ecosystem that includes mangroves and seagrasses on both the ocean and bay side of the Florida Keys. The Florida Keys: A History & Guide is an engaging handbook to the unique coral and limestone islands that curve southwest off the tip of Florida.

This book presents scientific studies in the South Florida Hydroscape, discusses policy and management by government and nonprofit groups, and explores how the whole watershed approach must be used to successfully protect coral reefs.

"Ecosystems of Florida has a proud heritage. Its "An important book that everyone who works on Florida environmental policy in any way should own [and] anyone who cares about nature in Florida would love to own."/5(2). We investigated the role that the mesophotic coral ecosystems of Pulley Ridge (off the southwest coast of Florida) played in replenishing key coral, sponge, algal, and fish species in the downstream reefs of the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas.

Because of the well-documented decline of Florida’s reefs, it is important to identify, protect, and manage. The Florida Reef Tract is located on the continental shelf and is the most extensive living coral reef ecosystem in North America.

The Straits of Florida parallel the Florida Keys and the Florida Keys Reef Tract. The warm, clear, low-nutrient waters of the Florida Current create the stable conditions that make coral reef development possible at.

The Florida Keys–A History Through Maps covers the creation of the Keys Archipelago chain, the Native American Indians who once ruled them, the Spanish who “discovered” them, the pioneers who farmed them, and, eventually, the railroad men and developers who sculpted the land, connecting the many individual islands with causeways and bridges.

Abstract. Mesophotic coral ecosystems (MCEs) have the potential to supply larvae to help sustain spatially discrete shallow-reef populations (Deep Reef Refugia Hypothesis); however, for this to be viable, mesophotic populations must be ecologically connected to shallow-reef primary criteria for successful connectivity are: (1) robust populations of shallow-reef species must.The Everglades, Florida Bay, and Coral Reefs of the Florida Keys: An Ecosystem Sourcebook James W.
