Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 201)

In this chapter, we develop models of spatial distribution of STP using data from the three Water Conservation Areas (WCAs) in central Everglades collected by the aforementioned authors and also data collected by the Duke University Wetland Center from the northern part of the Everglades National Park (ENP). In addition, we present the spatial distribution of PAR using a relationship between PAR and STP developed using nonparametric regression. We first discuss the data, and then present the statistical methods we used. The results are presented in two parts: one on the relationship between PAR and STP, the other on spatial distributions of STP and PAR.
