New milestone book documents changes in the south Florida marine ecosystem
Date:7/24/2012

CAMBRIDGE, MD (July 25, 2012)If you live, vacation, boat, swim, snorkel, bird watch, or eat shellfish in south Florida, you are "connected" to the south Florida marine habitats. A new book, Tropical Connections: South Florida's marine environment, documents the dramatic changes in south Florida's marine ecosystem over the last few decades. Published by IAN Press, it is the culmination of an unprecedented effort to assemble a summary of the status and threats to south Florida marine habitats, a unique environment of the United States that is under severe pressure because of activities related to human development.

"South Florida is a beautiful and unique ecosystem with iconic animals and diverse habitats, adjacent to a vibrant megacity," said Dr. Bill Dennison of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. "This richly illustrated and readable book provides information that will aid the informed management of the resource and allow future generations the opportunity to share and enjoy the beauty and richness of this region."

The human population of south Florida is growing rapidly. Declining water quality, physical damage to coral reefs, seagrass beds, and mangrove forests, and decreased fish landings are symptoms of increasing impacts by humans to the ecosystem. Tropical Connections: South Florida's marine environment was assembled to help scientists, students, policymakers, and citizens to understand the complexity and the connectivity between aquatic habitats in south Florida, and to promote wise management in order to restore and maintain the marine ecosystem.

The 473-page milestone book features entries on topics ranging across every aspect of the marine ecosystem, from mangrove forests to coral reefs. Editors Dr. William L. Kruczynski of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Pamela J. Fletcher of Florida Sea Grant, liaison to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Atlantic Oceanographi
