Abstract

The goal of this project is to determine current ecological and biogeochemical characteristics of Northeast Shark River Slough (NESS) including water and soil quality, and community characteristics of flora and fauna in order to (1) relate the distribution of biota relative to existing variation in water quality, hydroperiod and water depth and (2) select biotic indicators for continued monitoring that will allow detection of ecosystem change on appropriate temporal and spatial scales as the Tamiami Trail boundary is modified to allow more water into NESS.
