The protection of Everglades and Dry Tortugas National Parks requires continuous monitoring of natural resources. Doing so contributes to our understanding of the linkages between our physical and biological resources.
Biological resources are assesed by monitoring the full suite of wildlife and vegetation found in the parks. In turn, these examinations can be used to document trends in both our freshwater and marine ecosystems.
