Introduction
        The Florida Everglades are subtropical wetlands located in the southern portion of the state of Florida, extending from Lake Okeechobee on the north to Florida Bay on the south and was once bordered by Big Cypress Swamp on the west and the Atlantic Coastal Ridge on the east. The Everglades landscape is a unique combination of wetlands and uplands, including several distinct habitats such as sawgrass marshes, sloughs, wet prairies, tree islands, tropical hardwood hammocks, pinelands, and at its southern most extreme, mangrove swamps and the Florida Bay estuary. We invite you to learn more about the Everglades by exploring the following Nature, Science and Science Resources links. Please note that these links are on websites outside of the Florida Coastal Everglades LTER website and will open in a new window.
