Ecosystems of Florida. Ronald L. Myers and John J. Ewel, Eds.. Orlando: University of Florida Press,1990.
This impressive volume owes its genesis to the Nongame Program of the Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission, which recognized a need for basic descriptions of the state's habitats as an aid to management. With the Commission's support, the book was planned at a workshop early in 1986. The objective that emerged from that workshop was to produce an introduction to the ecology of Florida's natural landscape that would be technically sound and up-to-date, and yet be accessible to the much larger non-scientific audience interested in the state's environments.
