Climate and Ecology of East Central Florida Observations

Recommended Posts

Jimbean

My contributions from this topic  inspired me to make a thread on just Brevard, Treasure coast, and Orlando areas.  I'll post my observations and give my opinions but the main purpose will be to gather input from others as well.  Please feel free to post here.

The palms at the bottom look like Allagoptera ... possibly Allagoptera arenaria.

This thread will be an interesting re-read later this week :)

Ficus species

 

Most of the strangler figs were small and I did not take pictures of them.  I still took some just to demonstrate that they are very common and I think are often missed.  There were some larger strangler figs there too; generally this species is more common on the coast, then tapers off as one heads inland

Jim, thank you for posting all of these native shrubs palms and hardwoods.  This is now one of my areas of interest.  So far I have the Geiger tree (seeds), gumbo limbo, Ficus aurea, Coccoloba uvifera, red mangrove and the the temperate Nyssa sylvatica and Acer floridanum, as well as Quercus virginiana.  Photos to come later.

Next on my list is Cocoplum, Natal plum, West Indian Mahogany and white mangrove.

I plan on posting more on the royals in Brevard and Treasure coasts later.  One of the problems I run into is that I don't always know for sure if a royal is pre 1989 or not.  It's getting harder to tell as the years go on.  Also, anytime I am near mature royals and there is land that is unkept that retains moisture you will often find volunteers popping up

Leucothrinax morrisii, I believe survived the 1980's

 

Edit:

I've been told a long time ago that there were other thatch palm species that existed around the campus but were cut down in the late 1990's for whatever reason.
