Tracking Water Quality Through Algae
Every three months for the past six years, Florida International University biologist Tom Frankovich has been making dives to 44 sites scattered in the brackish lake system that borders north central Florida Bay, on the southern edge of the Everglades National Park mainland.

He is determining the amount of algae and seagrass coverage and augments that date with water quality samples that he takes months at all of the same 44 sites in an effort to learn more about the processes that are acting upon this Everglades estuary system.

Scientists blame the decline of chara algae on the poor water quality of the Florida Bay region and on overly salty conditions caused by the canal system, which diverts Everglades freshwater east, sending it out t the Atlantic Ocean rather than into the bay.

Water garden plants are often discovered in Wisconsin waters this time of year when pond owners reduce plant numbers or drain ponds before winter.
