Palms of the Miami biennial in 150 photos

Recommended Posts

elHoagie

I've finally sorted through my photos from the biennial, which I'll now post in more or less chronological order. I have IDs for almost everything, bug please correct any mistakes you see.

Our first stop was Highland Hammock State Park, which contains an amazing old growth forest. The mid day light was brutal for photos, but here's a couple (mainly with Sabal palmetto in them).

We were then off to Jeff Searle's nursery, where we were greater in style with cold drinks and fantastic food! In addition to all the palms in containers for sale, there is an amazing collection planted out as a garden.

Next stop was Fairchild, which had a few decent plants to look at... I actually ended up spending most of the day in the Caribbean section, so I didn't see most of the gardens. Maybe next time I'm in Miami...

The next day we were off to Key West, with a couple of stops on the way. First was Mahogany Hammock in Everglades National Park.

There were quite a few very nice Acoelorrhaphe wrightii on the boardwalk trail, with some Sabal palmettos mixed in as well.

The last stop before Key West was Bahia Honda State Park. It was filled with amazing (and huge!) Coccothrinax argentata. There were also a few Leucothrinax morrisii (see the foreground leaf in the last photo).

The next day was free, and Mike Lock, Larry Black, and I rented a car to head over to Key Deer National Wildlife Refuge. It was mind blowing, with Leucothrinax morrisii stretching for miles in all directions. There were also some Serenoa repens, Sabal palmetto, and Coccothrinax argentata. We ended up spending about 6 hours exploring the refuge...

The refuge also had a lot of nice wildlife, including, of course, Key Deer. I saw quite a few of the deer, and one of them even let me follow him around for almost an hour while he grazed!

When we finished at the Wildlife Refuge we decided to head back to Bahia Honda State Park. When we had visited the previous day the wind was blowing pretty hard, which made it difficult to take decent photos. Unfortunately, we arrived at the state park around 2:00, and the harsh sun made photography difficult (although, I of course still took a few photos).

I decided to wake up very early the next morning to try to get a photo of a classic Key West sunrise. The clouds didn't cooperate, but it was still fairly nice.

      SFPS Guest, Monday OCT. 19, 2020 - 7:20PM - REGISTRATION REQUIRED (SFPS Members & Non Members Invited)   Click here to register. - http://bit.ly/SFPS2020OCT   "Defaunation in the Anthropocene" presented by Dr. Mauro Galetti, Director of the Gifford Arboretum (University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida)     Dr. Mauro Galetti is a tropical ecologist at the University of Miami and Director of the Gifford Arboretum. His current research centers broadly on the effects of animal extinction on key ecological, evolutionary and ecosystem processes. Current understanding of the effects of animal extinction and the cascading effects in terrestrial ecosystems has been historically based in relatively simple food webs. In contrast, the effects of human-induced trophic cascades in hyper-diverse complex ecosystems, such as tropical rainforests, are largely unknown.

      Dr. Galetti has been studying seed dispersal by fish, lizards, birds, and mammals, including extinct megafauna. He sees the extinction of large vertebrates during the last 50,000 years as a continuous human-driven impact on the biodiversity on Earth. Dr. Galetti is fascinated by rainforests and has been working in the Atlantic forests of South America for many years.

      About 90% of all tree species rely on animal- dispersal and as a result, Dr. Galetti is trying to understand how the loss of seed dispersers will affect plant recruitment and how this ultimately will affect climate and other ecosystem functions.

      Defaunation, known as the local, global or functional extinction of animals, has become a major biodiversity threat. In this talk, Dr. Galetti will take the audience to the myriad of consequences of animal extinction in these 3 scales: local, global and functional. His main focus here is to introduce cascading consequences of losing animals for plant reproduction (seed dispersal) up to the ecosystem scale (carbon storage). Finally, Dr. Galetti will be presenting his new work on the effects of defaunation in the Caribbean Island ecosystems.
