Avon Park Air
Force Range lies within a 750 square-mile area known as the Kissimmee
River Valley Dry Prairie region. Despite its vast historical extent
and its rich flora and fauna, dry prairie remains one of the most poorly
known and least studied ecosystems in Florida.
The conference will highlight
Air Force-sponsored research that has resulted in numerous ecological
and botanical studies on dry prairie.
