Four hundred thirty two species of plants, invertebrate animals and fish are reported from the marine and brackish-water areas of northern Florida Bay and adjacent estuaries. Notes on their abundance, tolerance to change in the physical environment, and distribution in relation to habitat
are included. This work was done in order that their fluctuations in distribution and abundance in a natural environment might be better understood. This information could eventually aid in interpreting changes in populations due to man-made alterations in shallow water.
The Bulletin of Marine Science is dedicated to the dissemination of high quality research from the world's oceans. All aspects of marine science are treated by the Bulletin of Marine Science, including papers in marine biology, biological oceanography, fisheries, marine affairs, applied marine physics, marine geology and geophysics, marine and atmospheric chemistry, and meteorology and physical oceanography.
