Coastal Habitat Projects
To successfully protect Florida's coastal wetlands, FWRI staff work on many different projects to assess and understand these habitats.
Coastal Habitat Integrated Mapping and Monitoring Program (CHIMMP)
This project compiled mapping and monitoring data for mangrove and salt marsh habitat in Florida, resulting in a collaborative report and data gap analysis for coastal wetlands across the state.
Mangrove Forests' Response to Sea-Level Rise and Climate Change
This study investigates modern and historical rates of organic carbon burial and peat accretion in order to understand how mangrove ecosystems might adapt to future sea-level rise (SLR) and climate change.
Oyster Integrated Mapping and Monitoring Program (OIMMP)
This project compiled mapping and monitoring data for oyster reefs across Florida, resulting in a collaborative statewide report and compilation of mapped oyster reefs.
Which Tidal Creeks Make the Best Snook Habitats?
This study seeks to determine which local and landscape-level habitat features typify the most productive tributaries for common snook in Tampa Bay.
