Restoration of a more natural hydroperiod to Dupuis Reserve in South Florida resulted in elimination of Paspalum notatum. Panicum repens formed dense monocultures in response to increased flooding, but did not encroach upon Panicum hemitomon stands. Occurrence and frequency of Pontederia cordata and Panicum hemitomon increased in response to wetter conditions.
