Summary:
This report concerns a quantitative study of the ecology of South Biscayne Bay and Card Sound, Florida, with particular attention to the areas adjacent to Turkey Point and the mouth of the Model Land Company Canal. The Turkey Point program, begun in 1968, has continued and a study of the existing and relatively unspoiled biological situation of Card Sound has been conducted over the past year. This included an investigation on hydrography chemistry, vegetation, planktonic and benthic organisms. The biology of the organisms has been considered in relation to temperature, radio-activity, salinity ranges and selected chemical characteristics. The effect of higher temperatures on the dominant and sub-dominant species has also been studied both in the laboratory and in the field.
