Temporal and spatial changes in soil total phosphorus content and cattail coverage in the northern Everglades.
Sklar, F.H., Chimney, M.J., Newman, S., McCormick, P., Gawlik, D., Miao, ShiLi., McVoy, C., Said, W., Newman, J., Coronado, C., Crozier, G., Korvela, & Rutchey, K.2005. The ecological-social underpinnings of Everglades restoration. Front Ecol Environ, 3(3), 161-169.
Objectives: CERP is expected to reverse negative environmental trends by “getting the water right”.
How: This will produce ecological trade-offs and will require new and innovative scientific measures to:
+ reduce total phosphorus concentrations within the remaining marsh to 10 μg/L or lower.
+ quantify and link ecological benefits to the restoration of depths, hydro periods, and flow velocities.
+ compensate for ecological, economic, and hydrologic uncertainties in the CERP through adaptive management.
