Nutrient Fractionation in South Florida and implications for coastal waters and ecosystem restoration
Larry E. Brand, University of Miami, RSMAS, Miami, FL

Knowledge of this variation is important for accurately predicting the ecological effects of agricultural and urban runoff in coastal ecosystems. This is becoming increasingly important as the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan begins to alter the hydrology of South Florida
