South Florida Restoration Science Forum

Welcome to the Forum!

Forum Evaluation and Follow-up Team Report

The South Florida Restoration Science Forum website highlights the powerful connection between science and management decisions in restoration efforts. You can see first-hand how the public's investment in science is paying off in support of better management decisions and restoration of imperiled south Florida Ecosystems - including the internationally recognized, globally significant Everglades. The Forum affords a unique opportunity for everyone to see highlights of the most significant restoration science and management efforts underway. Hundreds of scientists from numerous organizations have prepared over five hundred posters and exhibits to show you the strength of the science that is done to have science-based decisions in managing the restoration effort. The forum is being held by the Working Group of the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force whoses member organizations are responsible for the multi billion dollar restoration projects in south Florida.

Those who participated in the Forum Kick Off at the Embassy Suites Boca Raton on May 17 -19, 1999 saw displays showing the links between science and management decisions, discussed how to strengthen those links, and interacted with the scientists doing the work. This web site houses that information plus new information that is continually be added to the site.
