Old field succession in Everglades National Park.

Date Issued:
1987
Summary:
A characterization of successional vegetation patterns on abandoned farmland in the Hole-in-the-Donut area of Everglades National Park was performed. Vegetative community composition and structure was examined in detail in 21 study plots located throughout the study site. Successional assemblages are described qualitatively and quantitatively. Distinct community types are defined using methods that emphasize site-to-site comparisons. The relationship between vegetation and substrate, farming history, hydroperiod, and spatial arrangement was examined. Successional forest, frequently dominated by exotic species, is a relatively new community in southern Florida.
