Schinus in Successional Ecosystems of Everglades National Park: Report T-676.

Date Issued:

Summary:
A farming technique called "rock plowing" used after the 1950's dramatically altered the substrate of former agricultural land within Everglades National Park, FL. The vegetation which recolonizes rock-plowed glades and prairies is considerably different from the herbaceous community which occupied the sites prior to farming. Schinus terebinthifolius is one such colonizer which poses a great threat to the surrounding native plant communities. Schinus's ecology is discussed at length, as well as control techniques (herbicide tests and stand conversion). Management recommendations are suggested.
