Freshwater Plant Research and Monitoring

Florida’s freshwater wetland plant communities provide a valuable service for wildlife and humans alike; they clean and filter the water that runs through them. They also provide habitat for many species of fish and terrestrial animals. The freshwater wetland plants research group conducts research on the plant communities supported by lakes, rivers, springs, swamps, and estuaries.
