CESI Assessment Project 06-2
Small fish live throughout the freshwater areas of the Everglades and therefore provide an ideal indicator of desirable system-wide seasonal marsh conditions. The aim of this project was to develop a protocol for evaluating the potential impacts of alternative hydrologic management plans on remote areas of the Everglades using a long-term database of aquatic communities.
