2010 Everglades Seagrass Workshop
SFNRC Home>> 2010 Everglades Seagrass Workshop
The South Florida Natural Resources Center hosted a Florida Bay Seagrass workshop in March 2010. The purpose of this workshop was to: 1) highlight recent trends in Florida Bay seagrass communities, 2) present research projects results from recently completed studies, and 3) refine short and long-term research needs of ENP. We invited research collaborators and agency representatives to the workshop to discuss recent developments in Florida Bay and to help develop priorities for short term monitoring and research needs to help answer questions associated with the health of the seagrass communities in Florida Bay. We have hyperlinks to copies of each of the individual presentations below.
In the near future we hope to post notes collected during the afternoon panel discussions, and videos of each of our presentations. If you have questions about this workshop, please contact Dr. Jerry Krueger, Science Coordinator for Everglades National Park.

Did You Know?
Mermaid sightings have been reported by sailors throughout history who often blamed the part-woman, part-fish beings for leading them astray. But folklore experts believe that what those sailors were seeing were not mermaids, but rather air-breathing manatees, or their dugong relatives.
