Everglades 1

Wet prairies
3' to 21' big cypress national preserve
Big biological shift
Slews with sedge
Ridges that intersigitate the slews
North south water flow affects the dynamic
Losing that pattern in the landscape
If you lose relief between wet and dry zones then ecology drastically shifts
Ridges aren't easily seen as discrete
SW 8 St runs across Everglades
Huge fires burned peat
FL peatland here and around Caribbean basin function differently
Sci study as a way to fund management
