Pre-settlement Extent of the Florida Dry Prairie Landscape

Dry Prairie Map Prepared from original land surveys conducted mostly between 1820 and 1870, this map shows the estimated presettlement extent (not what remains today) of the dry prairie landscape.  Florida dry prairie landscape includes several plant communities: dry prairie, prairie hammocks, depression ponds/marshes, saw-grass marshes, wet wiregrass prairies, and other plant community types.
