Title: Restoring the Everglades: How Old Dead Things help us Solve Today's Problems
Paleoecologist Dr. Lynn Wingard highlights the unique aspects and restoration challenges of the Greater Everglades Ecosystem of southern Florida. Development and water management practices have profoundly altered this ecosystem, endangering much of the animal life in the area. Current restorations efforts attempting to restore the ecosystem faces challenges about how to determine what the natural state of the Everglades should be and how this can be measured. Wingard shares research USGS scientists are conducting that is providing the answers to these questions, allowing restoration management agencies to develop realistic and attainable restoration goals.
