Summary:
The intent of this report is to provide a bibliography of the hydrologic literature, both historic and current, concerning the Everglades area, which includes the Conservation Areas and Everglades National Park, and the Big Cypress Swamp, which includes the Big Cypress National Preserve (Figure 1 and 2). These areas represent the southern portion of the Kissimmee River- Lake Okeechobee Watershed, with the Conservation Areas and the Big Cypress providing the bulk of the overland flow into the Park (Figure 3). The hydrology of the basin is a system of complex relationships, and determines the unique ecological environment of the area. Through man's manipulations in his efforts to farm, urbanize and industrialize South Florida, he has altered the historic flow regime of the area. This in turn affected the biological environment in a chain reaction attendant to such a sensitive, interdependent system.
