Abstract

Examines the sulfate reduction process in two types of freshwater wetland soils in Apalachicola National Forest, Florida. Sulfate reduction was found to be an active process in both Cliftonia monophylla (titi) and Nyssa biflora (black gum) soils. Adding sulfate, lime, and substrate increased sulfate reduction in the black gum swamp but not in the titi swamp. Results have implications for the tolerance of each of these swamp systems to wastewater loading.
