Microtopography and woody plant regeneration in a hardwood floodplain swamp in Florida
Author(s): Jonathan Harold Titus

Article Topic(s): Community level survey, Floristics
Research Setting(s): Forest, Wetland
Species Referenced: Hypericum hypericoides (St. andrew's-cross),
AbstractA survey of the distribution of woody species in floodplain swamps revealed significant effects due to microtopography. Hypericum hypericoides plants were found more commonly than predicted by random models in tip-up mounds (areas elevated by tipped trees resulting in higher elevation microsites) and at sites with a mean elevation of approximately 26 cm above the "moss line".
