Integrating the Impact of Climate Change into Policy, Planning and Implementation of Everglades Restoration Moderated Panel Discussion: The focus will be on addressing Everglades’ restoration targets, research needs, modeling needs, and resource-related policy and management issues that need further consideration in the context of climate change. The history of draining and development of the Everglades dates back to the 19th century. A national push for expansion and progress toward the latter part of the 19th century stimulated interest in draining the Everglades for agricultural use. According to historians, "From the middle of the nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth century, the United States went through a period in.
Florida Bay, south of the Everglades, increased the Bay’s salinity with adverse effects on estuarine species. Independently, south Florida agricultural practices resulted in excessive nutrient concentrations in Lake Okeechobee and downstream basin water resulting in additional damage to the flora and fauna inhabiting these areas.

The Climate Research and Development (Climate R&D) Program strives to advance the understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological components of the Earth system, the causes and consequences of climate and land use change, and the vulnerability and resilience of the Earth system to such changes. The Everglades are a large, tropical–subtropical wetland spanning most of south Florida, bordered to the west by the Gulf of Mexico and to the south by Florida Bay. Sheet flow from Lake Okeechobee through the Everglades discharges southwards through Taylor Slough into Florida Bay and westwards through the Shark River Slough into the Shark.

Cross-Cutting Impacts. Coastal parks around the country — and the world — are at risk from rising ocean levels and storm surge. The National Park Service identified 24 park sites in the Pacific West Region that are especially vulnerable, and these parks cover a vast area, from California and the Pacific Northwest to Hawaii, American Samoa, Saipan and Guam.
Southern Florida's Everglades are at the front line of potential negative effects on aquatic ecosystems from climate change and associated sea-level rise. A diversity of aquatic habitats supports a rich assemblage of aquatic and terrestrial wildlife, including 36 vertebrates and 26 plant species federally listed as endangered, threatened, or candidate by: The Everglades is a natural region of tropical wetlands in the southern portion of the U.S.

22 Examples of Ecological Impacts of Climate Change in the United States Climate change is global in scope, but ecological impacts are often quite localized. Although most of the evidence of the ecological impacts of climate change stems from trends observed among hundreds of species rather than a particular species, there are compelling.
Non-native Burmese pythons have established a breeding population in South Florida and are one of the most concerning invasive species in Everglades National Park.
Pythons compete with native wildlife for food, which includes mammals, birds, and other reptiles. Severe mammal declines in Everglades National Park have been linked to Burmese pythons. Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change about 25% (NPA,).However,warming at high-er latitudes combined with increased heat stress in the southeastern US may serve to decrease popula-tion migration towards the Southeast.
Based on the Census,about 61% of the Southeast’s population is considered urban. The. Ecological Indicators for Everglades Restoration Report, the South Florida Environmental Report, and the RECOVER System Status Report (SSR) which addresses the overall status of the ecosystem relative to system-level hypotheses, performance measures, and restoration goals.
These issues were explored in a recent workshop on the ecological effects of climate change in the Everglades. 4 In this section, the committee describes the implications of climate change and sea-level rise on Everglades hydrology, landscapes, water quality, and biota.
Climate change and land use in Florida: Interdependencies and opportunities Stephen Mulkey, PhD Introduction Anthropogenic climate change is now widely regarded as possibly the most significant challenge facing humanity. Climate change over the next years and beyond will affect virtually every aspect of living systems in Florida and the world.
Evapotranspiration is the second most important component of the Everglades’ hydrology but is the most poorly understood. We have begun to build a wealth of information over the past years regarding ET. Progress has been made in gathering data that are used for the evaluation of climate models.
The South Florida region has a subtropical maritime climate with pronounced seasonality divided into a wet season (May-October) and a dry season (November-April).During the wet season, showers and thunderstorms are common and sharp salinity gradients are found along the shoreline, progressively changing to near-oceanic conditions at the barrier islands and offshore by: 1.
climate change for many years, world leaders have been slow to react and implement measures to mitigate the risks. Key sources of information on climate change are synthesised by the successive reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) created by the United Nations and the World Meteorological Organization in "Ecological Consequences of Artificial Night Lighting is an excellent reference that will undoubtedly raise awareness of the need to conserve energy, do proper impact assessments, and turn the lights down."

This chapter outlines the ecological changes across South Florida, and examines the value of existing and restored wetlands in reducing flood risks. The value of ecosystems services changes across the built landscape, and these services require a source of funding to restore or expand freshwater and coastal : Kathleen Sullivan Sealey, Ray King Burch, P.-M.
Binder.Florida's Ecosystems Florida has many ecosystems, but the three main ones are the Everglades, Big Cypress Swamp, and the Keys. The Big Cypress Swamp is part of the broad, shallow river moving freshwater south into the Everglades. The Keys, however, mark the last outposts of the Everglades lands.In Florida, especially South Florida, insufficient information is available on the occurrence, sources, fate, distribution and transport of PFAS, their precursors and transformation products in the environment.
This means that the implications of their presence for potential human exposure is largely unknown.
