The structure and standing crop biomass of a dwarf mangrove forest, located in the salinity transition zone ofTaylor River Slough in the Everglades National Park, were studied. Although the four mangrove species reported for Florida occurred at the study site, dwarf Rhizophora mangle trees dominated the forest. The structural characteristics of the mangrove(More)
Sulfate from seawater inhibits methane production in tidal wetlands, and by extension, salinity has been used as a general predictor of methane emissions. With the need to reduce methane flux uncertainties from tidal wetlands, eddy covariance (EC) techniques provide an integrated methane budget. The goals of this study were to: 1) establish methane(More)
From 1996 to 2002, we measured litterfall, standing litter crop, and litter turnover rates in scrub, basin, fringe and riverine forests in two contrasting mangrove ecosystems: a carbonate-dominated system in the Southeastern Everglades and a terrigenous-dominated system in Laguna de Terminos (LT), Mexico. We hypothesized that litter dynamics is driven by(More)
A 3-month field study was conducted to examine the effects of Atchafalaya River discharge on nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations in the Fourleague Bay system, to document patterns with salinity variation, to evaluate stoichiometric nutrient ratios of nitrogen and phosphorus in the river and bay, and to examine the relationship between estuarine(More)
INTRODUCTION While there are many factors known to predict the outcomes of hip and knee arthroplasty procedures, there is a growing interest in predictors that take into consideration the social and psychological preparedness of patients prior to surgery. This study's aim was to determine whether patients' preoperative social support and pain(More)
Fundus autofluorescence (FAF), a relatively new imaging modality, focuses on the fluorescent properties of pigments in the retina to generate images that help us view various disease processes from a different perspective. It aids us in the understanding of the pathophysiology of different retinal disorders. Recently, FAF imaging is being used commonly to(More)
