Mangrove Forest in Everglades National Park

2019 (approx.)

Detailed Description

A mangrove forest and adjacent mudflat near Big Sable Creek in Everglades National Park (Florida, USA). In this area, mangrove forest mortality and peat collapse due to a powerful tropical cyclone in 1935 led to the conversion of mangrove forests to mudflats. This area was once covered by more extensive mangrove forests but is now a mosaic of mangrove forest and mudflats.
