Summary:
Frequency data collected from two surveyed transect lines within the Lake Okeechobee littoral zone were used to determine the elevation ranges and preferred periods of inundation of six major plant communities. Species composition was documented within each community by use of species presence data. The study provides baseline data for assessing the impact that changes in hydroperiod, resulting from future water management techniques, may have upon littoral zone vegetation.
