Abstract

The Suwannee River sill was constructed following extensive wildfires during 1954-1955, with the intent of protecting the swamp and surrounding uplands from effects of wildfires. During subsequent years, concern was raised that the dam might be adversely affecting the swamp ecology by extending periods of inundation, increasing water depths, and subsequently affecting swamp vegetation. Delineating the effects of the Suwannee River sill on the swamp hydrologic environment and vegetation distributions, in the process of exploring relationships among driving functions and landscape responses, was a purpose of this research.(834 page document)
