Florida Sea Grant: South Florida Ecosystem Synthesis Permanent Link
This book aims to synthesize research pertaining to key background and drivers of the South Florida ecosystem. Eight chapters organize the main research topics: geographic setting, oceanography, water quality, coral reef and hardbottom, seagrasses, mangroves, some important biota, and some important management actions. Chapter content is comprised of a series of fact sheets, each written by different researchers, and meant to stand alone as a single fact sheet, or together as a comprehensive book. IAN provides a supporting role in creating diagrams for each book chapter, while layout is provided by Pamela Fletcher of NOAA, and content provided by individual Florida researchers.  Full Details
