Hydrology plant community relationships in the okefenokee swamp georgia usa



Florida Scientist 45(3): 171-176



Shallow wells (7) along a transect crossing all of the major habitats in the Okefenokee Swamp were monitored and measured water levels, hydroperiods and water table gradients were measured. Although differences in ground surface elevations between habitats are minor within the swamp, hydroperiods varied from 246-346 da during 1977-1978. Extrapolation from nearby staff gauge records indicates that marsh, shrub and cypress communities were dry for periods of 1 mo. or more during 27 of the 36 yr of record, but waterlily communities were without surface water for 1 mo. or more only during 16 yr. Water table gradients suggest that ground water flows into the swamp from the surrounding uplands except during droughts, when the flow is reversed.
