Abstract

My research focuses on the way in which the landscape pattern of the coastal Everglades influences carbon cycling and transport. The southern Everglades is marked by a pond-and-creek hydrologic drainage pattern and the way that this affects the fate of carbon is of significance not only to local managers but also to worldwide climate change. I will also examine the metabolism of southern Everglades aquatic ecosystems, which may serve as an indicator of ecosystem performance and, therefore, response to Everglades restoration.
