Summary:
Two-thirds of South Florida's mangrove forests are found within Everglades National Park. The authors studied a mangrove zone between Flamingo and Joe Bay, within the national park. This zone included mangrove and buttonwood strands, tropical hardwood hammocks, and Salicornia and Batis flats. This region was mapped, using aerial photographs, and species associations were identified. A species checklist is provided.

Summary: Two-thirds of South Florida's mangrove forests are found within Everglades National Park. The authors studied a mangrove zone between Flamingo and Joe Bay, within the national park. This zone included mangrove and buttonwood strands, tropical hardwood hammocks, and Salicornia and Batis flats. This region was mapped, using aerial photographs, and species associations were identified. A species checklist is provided.
Summary: The relative inaccessibility and inhospitality of the mangrove environment, and the brevity of ecological studies due to human lifetimes in relation to processes involved were some of the reasons given for the paucity of detailed knowledge of specific change in the mangrove environment. This mapping project was initiated toward acquiring baseline information to allow workers for interpreting change in the mangrove zone of ENP.
Summary: Changes in mangrove vegetation due to hurricane destruction and silt deposition, freezing temperatures, sea level rise/fall, and input of freshwater from rainfall and runoff were discussed. Also, a description of floristic composition and structure of mapped units along with species lists for several hammocks were provided.
Summary: Study Period:1978-1980; Study Type:Quantitative, qualitative; Gear Type:Color aerial photography (1978), USGS orthophotomaps, ground-truthing techniques; Habitat:Coastal mangrove; Dominant Taxon/Taxa Studied:Rhizophora mangle.
