The Greater Everglades were famously coined as The River of Grass by Marjory Stoneman Douglas as part of her efforts to call attention to the degradation of the south Florida ecosystem in Although authorized inEverglades National Park was not.

The Everglades is a natural region of tropical wetlands in the southern portion of the U.S. state of Florida, comprising the southern half of a large drainage basin within the Neotropical ecosystem it forms is not presently found anywhere else on earth.

The system begins near Orlando with the Kissimmee River, which discharges into the vast but shallow Lake nates: 26°00′N 80°42′W / °N. The most direct way, is through rain. The Everglades gets a lot of its water from rainfall (somewhere around 60 inches per year on average). When it starts raining over south Florida, it rains everywhere including on our largest lake, Lake Okeechobee.

This is the start of the most indirect way for water to flow into the Everglades. A critically important but often overlooked aspect of the Everglades is the role of flow—the actual movement of water across the landscape—in creation and maintenance of habitats for Everglades plants and animals.

Successful restoration of the Everglades landscape requires a thorough understanding of the role of flow (SCT ). The storm appeared to have only minor effects on the interior freshwater wetlands of The Everglades, which are composed mainly of sawgrass.

Nearly all post-storm (August 28 to Septem ) water-quality properties sampled by the South Florida Water Management District were within the range of pre-storm values.

A t first pass, there seems little amiss in the idyll of Florida Bay. A wedge-shaped expanse of water between the Everglades and the Florida Keys, it is. The white water lily's scientific name is Nymphea odorata.

The beautiful plant can be seen on the surfaces of water like the ponds in the Everglades. In order to survive, the plant needs slow moving water. Not only slow moving water, but the flowering plant depends on a lot of microorganisms.

The microorganisms are needed so that their roots. LOVE THE EVERGLADES MOVEMENT.

It is very much unlike the beauty of the feathered Snail Kite or the secretive marsh bird. To see the glory of pristine water quality, you must view the water through the shoots and roots of native Everglades flora.

The Everglades once covered alm square miles of South Florida. Just a century ago, water flowed down the Kissimmee River into Lake Okeechobee, then south through the vast Everglades to Florida Bay, the ultimate destination of uninterrupted sheetflow. As of late October, the South Florida Water Management District had eliminated nearly 2, pythons in the same timeframe.

The snake may be the best-known invasive species currently on. Florida Bay, the largest body of water within Everglades National Park, contains more than square miles of marine bottom, much of which is covered by submerged vegetation. Seagrass and algae provide shelter and sustenance to numerous marine organisms, which in turn sustain the food chain that supports all higher vertebrates in the bay.

Florida Everglades Invasive Plants in Florida. Webster's Dictionary defines invasive as: tending to infringe or spread; and over the years Floridian's have continued to suffer from an invasion of non-native plants that threaten the pristine beauty of our natural places.

If plants were here before Columbus arrived they are considered native. Some of the negatives are loss of habitat, water and land in the Everglades.

Urbanization has resulted in the loss of a lot of wetland area in the Everglades. Hydroperiod: the length of time and portion of the year the wetland holds water. Longer hydroperiods in the Everglades ecosystem have a positive effect on aquatic species like the.

Glossary terms on page: sawgrass marsh: a large expanse of sawgrass containing standing water for much of the year.; wet prairie: dominated by emergent plants including grasses and other low growing plants in large areas of open water.; sloughs: main routes of moving water through the Everglades.; alligator holes: located in marshes with long hydroperiods throughout the Everglades.

The Everglades lost half its ecosystem after Tamiami Trail was built through the heart of the national park in the s, cutting off water flow. Now, restoration efforts are finally taking effect. Essay about The Florida Everglades Words | 13 Pages.

The Florida Everglades The Florida Everglades have been adversely impacted for decades because of human attempts to control this historical ‘River of Grass’. The reason for our insistence on attempting to control and manage the area can be defined in one word: water.Inthis submersed, usually rooted, aquatic perennial herb invaded more than 40 percent of Florida's water bodies.

It creates dense stands that alter fish populations, cause shifts in zooplankton communities and affects water chemistry.
