This project supports restoration activities in south Florida.

This project supports restoration activities in south Florida by participating in the CERP process and through conducting original research. The Principal Investigator participates in CERP as a member (Seagrass Team Leader) of the Florida Bay Program Management Committee, as a member of the Florida Bay Florida Keys Feasibility PDT and as a member of the RECOVER Southern Estuaries Sub Team. Respectively, the objectives of these activities are broadly: 1) to develop and implement (with other agency members) a program of research to support the restoration of Florida Bay; 2) with other PDT members to develop and evaluate restoration alternatives for Florida Bay and 3) with other committee members to develop performance measures and assess restoration alternatives affecting Florida Bay, Biscayne Bay, Barnes Sound and Manatee Bay and the lower southwest coast mangrove estuaries.
