Abbott, C.A. Berry, M.W., and Dempsey, J.C., "Computational Models of White-Tailed Deer in the Florida Everglades"
UTK-CS Technical Report No. CS-95-296, August 1995

This technical report, provided here with full text and graphics, details the development of the SIMPDEL (Spatially-Explicit Individual-Based Simulation Model of Florida Panther and White-Tailed Deer in the Everglades and Big Cypress Landscapes) for analyzing and predicting the effects of alternative water management scenarios in South Florida on the long-term populations of white-tailed deer and Florida panther. This model simulates the aging, reproduction, foraging, growth, and mortality of individual animals over a period of 23 years.

C & SF Project Comprehensive Review Study (Army Corps of Engineers)

The Review Study, according to its sponsor, the Army Corps of Engineers, will "reexamine the Central and Southern Florida (C& SF) Project to determine the feasibility of structural or operational modifications needed to restore the Everglades and Florida Bay ecosystems while providing for other water-related needs such as urban and agricultural water supply and flood control."

Nutrient Exchange Between Florida Bay and the Everglades' Salinity Transition Zones

Research report presented to the South Florida Water Management District by John W. Day, Jr., and Enrique Reyes, Louisiana State University, Coastal Ecology Institute; and Daniel Childers, Florida International University, Southeast Environmental Research Program.

Landscape Modeling in the Florida Everglades

Summarizes the research carried out by the University of Maryland and the South Florida Water Management concerning alterations to the Everglades landscape due to large-scale water management.

Introduction to Best Management Practices for Phosphorus Control on Organic Soils

This BMP series, published by FAIRS (the Florida Agricultural Information Retrieval System) of the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Cooperative Extension Service, specifically addresses phosphorus control in the Everglades Agricultural Area. Information contained in these documents could also be applied to any agricultural area composed primarily of organic soils or Histosols.

Summary Of Data From Onsite And Laboratory Analyses Of Surface Water And Marsh Porewater From South Florida Water Management District Water Conservation Areas, The Everglades, South Florida, March 1995

Michael M. Reddy, George Aiken, Paul F. Schuster, Charmaine Gunther, Scott Charlton, and Jason Tregellas,Summary of surface water and marsh porewater data from Water Conservation Areas

This USGS report presents results of chemical analysis for samples collected during March 1995 as part of a study to quantify the interaction of aquatic organic material (referred to here as dissolved organic carbon (DOC)) with dissolved metal ions. The work was done in conjunction with the South Florida Water Management District, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the USGS South Florida Ecosystems Initiative, and the South Florida National Water Quality Assessment Study Unit. Samples were collected from surface canals and from marsh sites. Results are based on onsite and laboratory measurements for 27 samples collected at 10 locations. The data file contains sample description, DOC concentration and specific UV absorbance, and additional analytical data for samples collected at several sites in the Water Conservation Areas, the Everglades, South Florida.

Greater Everglades Ecosystem Restoration (G.E.E.R.) Science Conference

The purpose of this conference is to provide a forum for physical, biological, and social scientists to share their knowledge and research results concerning Everglades restoration. The objectives are to define specific restoration goals, determine the best approaches to meet these goals, and provide benchmarks that can be used to measure the success of restoration efforts over time.

South Florida Restoration Science Forum

This web site, sponsored by the USGS South Florida Ecosystem Program, offers information from the Science Forum which took place May 17-19, 1999. It includes extracts from displays showing the links between science and management decisions; from discussions about how to strengthen those links, and from interactions with the scientists doing the work.

1999 Florida Bay and Adjacent Marine Systems Science Conference

Introduction, agenda, call for posters, registration information, and more info for this scientific conference which took place November 1-5, 1999.

Versatility of Wetlands in the Agricultural Landscape (Conference information and abstracts of papers)

This conference from Fall 1995, jointly sponsored by the American Water Resources Association and the Society for Engineering in Agricultural, Food and Biological Systems, covered a number of Everglades-related topics, such as the "Everglades Nutrient Removal Project" and others.
