Summary:
The purpose of this investigation is to document the types of aquatic benthic organisms found within the Everglades and to determine the extent to which the chemical and physical character of surface water and bottom materials affect their distribution and community structure. The scope of this investigation included the collection of benthic organisms from October 1972 to April 1974. Two samplings were completed during the dry season (April 1973-74) and two during the wet season (October 1972-73). Of the 12 stations sampled, 10 were canals and 2 were in the open marsh. Comparison of species diversities calculated from similar investigations done in south Florida in recent years is made.
