Date Issued:

Summary:
Shark Slough drainage, the largest in Everglades National Park (ENP), forms the southern portion of the greater Everglades system. The imposition of artificial controls upon the natural system has led to important changes in the hydrological regime of Shark Slough. Relatively little is known of the extent that the current structure and distribution of vegetation within ENP has departed from pre-disturbance conditions.

Summary: Shark Slough drainage, the largest in Everglades National Park (ENP), forms the southern portion of the greater Everglades system. The imposition of artificial controls upon the natural system has led to important changes in the hydrological regime of Shark Slough. Relatively little is known of the extent that the current structure and distribution of vegetation within ENP has departed from pre-disturbance conditions.
Summary: The objectives of this report are to: 1) describe the patterns of plant communities within the Shark Slough portion of Everglades National Park as they existed in 1980; 2) describe quantitatively the composition of the marsh communities; 3) describe qualitatively the composition of selected Shark Slough tree communities; 4) provide supporting data on elevation, hydroperiods and soils for sampled areas, and 5) infer, within the limits of available data, the changes in vegetation that may have occurred in Shark Slough.
