• Describes the interactions between organisms in the everglades
The Everglades region of Florida is also called the "River of Grass" because of its shallow waters trickling down from Lake Okeechobee and its waving fields of saw grass. Many animals call the River of Grass their home, from insects to alligators. [ Until recently, land developers failed to understand the delicate relationship between the animals of the region and their water source, which led
to the near extinction of several species. The Everglades is a rare and biologically diverse region, at one time extending from Lake Okeechobee southward to Florida Bay. With yearlong subtropic temperatures and fresh water, the Everglades is the perfect habitat for a wide array of animals. There are more than 50 types of reptiles in the Everglades, including the American alligator. Thousands of insects and marine animals teem in the lowland mangroves and marshes, making this habitat a haven for migratory birds, as well. There are nearly 45 mammalian species in the Everglades, some of which are rare and endangered. ]
