Abstract:
This report summarizes current knowledge of the vegetation of Long Pine Key, and extensive limestone region in the southern Everglades that constitutes the principal upland of Everglades National Park. Historical review revealed that Long Pine Key was discovered about 1840, but its location and dimensions were not firmly established until Krome's survey of 1902-03. Since the area became accessible by road, farming (c.1916-1976,initially in prairies, later also in uplands), lumbering of pine (c.1936-1947), and prescribed burning of pine forests by the National Park Service (1958-present) have been the principal human activities that affected vegetation.
