The northern Everglades (Water Conservation Area 2A) annually receives an excess addition of 60M tons of phosphorus and 1814 M tons of nitrogen from agricultural run-off. During 1990–91, invertebrates were collected from replicate sweep and core samples at eight sites along the nutrient enrichment gradient in Water Conservation Area 2A (WCA-2A). Species richness, Shannon’s diversity, the number of unique species, and the density of invertebrates and small fish were all greater within enriched… CONTINUE READING
