Date Issued:
1979
Summary:
South Florida has a remarkable flora, quite distinctive within the United States for its strong tropical affinities. A large number of West Indian species occur in the United States only here, and a considerable number of plant species are endemic to South Florida. Major modifications have occurred and are occurring in South Florida ecosystems and some species have already been extirpated. A large portion of the southern tip of Florida and its islands is under the jurisdiction of the U.S. National Park Service- Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, Biscayne National Monument, and Fort Jefferson National Monument. Even these areas have been significantly modified from pristine ecological conditions and parts of the areas are currently subjected to active manipulation (prescribed burning, control of exotic plants, scheduled water releases) designed to preserve ecosystems in as natural a condition as possible.
