Of Southwest Florida

SPEAKER & TOPIC :  Alicia Dixon  is an ecologist with Passarella & Associates, Inc. and is currently in the Environmental Science Master's program at Florida Gulf Coast University.  She conducted her thesis research last summer at the Picayune Strand Restoration Project located on the western edge of Big Cypress Swamp in Collier County.  Her research utilized frog monitoring as a biological indicator to measure restoration progress within the Picayune.  The work was conducted using nocturnal audible frog call surveys, PVC pipe sampling, and limited dip-netting.  Alicia will discuss the restoration activities that have taken place at the Picayune and her research objectives, methods, and results.
