Florida Seagrass Foodweb Network

Developing even a small portion of the Florida seagrass water way has a profound on the surronding ecosystem. This food diagram network shows the connection of prey/predator web, and the ripple affect when you remove a single component. This diagram is the result of a study performed in 1994 in St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. [data src]

This network diagram visualizes foodweb ecosystems in trophic environments. Data was collected from St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge (Jan/Feb 1994), published as "Organizing and understanding a winter’s seagrass foodweb network through effective trophic levels".
