History of flooding

This chart shows a history of flooding for Big Cypress National Preserve from 1990 to present relative to major ecological thresholds.  Currently, the water's edge has receded into the center of the cypress domes.  That means that pretty much only the marsh and pond apple habitat are flooded with water.  This time last year the water's edge was a step higher at outer edges of the domes.
