Providing a synthesis of basic and applied research, The Everglades, Florida Bay, and Coral Reefs of the Florida Keys: An Ecosystem Sourcebook takes an encyclopedic look at how to study and manage ecosystems connected by surface and subsurface water movements. The book examines the South Florida hydroscape, a series of ecosystems linked by hydrology in a region of intense human development and profound modifications to the natural environment.

The book presents scientific studies in the South Florida Hydroscape, discusses policy and management by government and nonprofit groups, and explores how the whole watershed approach must be used to successfully protect coral reefs. The contributions range from the traditional to the controversial, questioning current management schemes and summarizing the results of state-of-the-art research.

Billions of dollars, countless man-hours, and innumerable resources have been spent studying the various South Florida ecosystems and how they are linked. The Everglades, Florida Bay, and Coral Reefs of the Florida Keys: An Ecosystem Sourcebook shows you how the principles learned in this region can be applied to other tropical and subtropical hydroscapes.

Review:

Authored by a virtual Who's Who of Florida ecological research ... The editors are commended for taking an even-handed approach ...In short, this is an extremely useful book. It doesn't have all the answers, but it shows where we should go to try to find them. Everyone involved in Florida coral reef research needs a copy--and that would be the minimum target audience. Although the price seems high, it is in fact a good value. I recommend it highly.
Michael Risk in Limnology and Oceanography

...there are many...excellent papers on topics ranging from recent changes in seagrass distribution to remote sensing of algal blooms to the potential impact of the Everglades on the accumulation of greenhouse gases.
Richard B. Aronson, University of South Alabama
