      Estuaries are bodies of water and their surrounding coastal habitats typically found where rivers meet the sea. Estuaries harbor unique plant and animal communities because their waters are brackish—a mixture of fresh water draining from the land and salty seawater. Biscayne Bay is the largest estuary on the coast of southeast Florida and is contiguous with the southern Florida Everglades and Florida Bay. It encompasses a marine ecosystem that totals approximately square miles. Its drainage area is square miles, of which are freshwater and coastal wetlands in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Monroe.

      Estuaries are among the most biologically productive ecosystems on the planet--critical to the life cycles of fish, other aquatic animals, and the creatures which feed on them. Estuarine Ecology, Second Edition, covers the physical and chemical aspects of estuaries, the biology and ecology of key organisms, the flow of organic matter through estuaries, and human interactions, such as the. Charlotte Harbor and Tampa Bay are the two major west Florida estuaries, formed by the lower reaches of the Peace River and Hillsborough River, respectively (Brooks ; Figure 2; Appendix 1, Figure 1). These two bays are rimmed by siliciclastic shorelines associated with sandy, quartzose, barrier beaches.

      This demersal species occurs in shallow depths within estuaries and coastal environments; it is most commonly found on the continental shelf at depths of 18–92 m, but has been collected to about m. Threats. This is a commercially and recreationally important species, particularly in Florida.

This report summarizes and synthesizes many years of scientific investigation into Tampa Bay's geology, hydrology and hydrography, water chemistry, and. Florida Bay is a unique subtropical estuary at the southern tip of the Florida peninsula. Recent ecological changes (seagrass die-off, algal blooms, increased turbidity) to the Florida Bay ecosystem have focused the attention of the public, commercial interests, scientists, and resource managers on the factors influencing the structure and function of Florida by: During the summer ofFlorida Bay was rela- tively clear, with light attenuation (kd) from 13 sites across Florida Bay averaging m-l 2 m-l (Fourqurean and Zieman ).

Duringchlorophyll concentrations were very low throughout Florida Bay, generally around 1 kg 1-l. Cover of the alga Chara hornemannii Wallman and water-quality parameters were measured over a 3-year period in adjacent mangrove subestuaries in Florida Bay, so as to describe temporal variability and infer relationships between Chara cover and water quality that will assist resource managers to restore Chara abundance to historically higher levels.

In addition to the river and some adjacent lands, the reserve protects the Apalachicola Bay, floodplains and a few barrier islands within itsacres.

However, northeastern Florida Bay may not be representative of most mangrove estuaries as the area: (1) is without lunar tides and related circulation; (2) has low and variable amounts of submersed vegetation; and (3) experiences severe hypersaline conditions.

Inthe Biscayne Bay Ecology Committee organized a symposium on the status of the Bay and the papers published in the proceedings are a synthesis of the physical, geological and biological processes, and man’s uses and interaction with the Bay.
