From acidic freshwater wetlands like the pitcher plant bogs that occur in northwest Florida (the greatest concentration of pitcher plants on the planet) to saltwater marshes like the relatively alkaline Spartina-Juncus stands, learn about the ecosystem services these marvelously diverse habitats bring to the planet.
List of Area Species
FSU scientists across the campus have contributed to the development of local species lists. Among the lists included here are (1) marine species of St. Joe Bay; (2) bay scallops on the Gulf coast; (3) sessile macroinvertebrates of Apalachee Bay; and (4) the plants around the marine lab. We also provide links to the FSU Robert K. Godfrey Herbarium and to Oceana’s Marine Life Encyclopedia. So kick back and take a virtual tour of local flora and fauna.
