This formation is oharacterised by the almost invariable

preaseoe of Pinus CllA u and which at the same times is te dominant

apciea. The number of species present is very small and all are

well adapted to a xerophlytic existence. In brief the scrub may oe

described as an inland or an extinct sand adne. The species peculiar

to the scrub are rinus Clouea, Quercus Myrtifolia, ceratiola ericoidea

and Oassytha filiformni. The latter occurs also on the pine woods

formation by attains its fullest development in the scrub. mere

ia parasitic cuscuta like species often covers several rods of

Moal8, or may completely envelope a tree.

(2) Hammock (2)

The cabbage palmetto occurs rather commonly in tre nammocks

and in many cases becomes the dominant species and under certain

exceptional conditions may oe almost the exclusive aroorescent

representative as is shown by the four views taken in somewhat

widely separated portions of Florida.

closely allied and very similar to the hammock is the so-called

bay head. The dominant species are the same as in a hoammock but

the undergrowth is very different since the soil for a portion

of the year is under water. The shrubs in this area are various

species of fleex. 6phagaruum moss beds occur frequently/

The features present in the namnock are so radically different

from those present in the pine woods tnat-one cannot be convinced

easily that there is not a difference in soil or supply of

moisture or other physical factor that determines the presence of

the hard wood area. I have triea all along to bring out the fact

that there is a very s-uarp demarkationbetween the two plant

* formations, not only as to the species but also as to the behavior

of species that are able to exist in both formations.

ie have three very strong arguments in favor of our belief

that the soil is not responsible for the change in plant formation

The difference between the chemical analysis of hammock soil and

pine woods soil is no greater than the difference between analyst

of different samples of pine wood soil. The mechanical analyses

likewise gives us no constant difference.

By far the strongest argument that we have in favor of the
belief that there is no essential difference in the original.

The striking features of this area is as the name indicates the
pine woods. In the northern section of the state P. palustris is

ia the predominant species. One may drive or ride -nany miles without
seeing a single other species of pine. The long straigth shaftlike

trunk reminds one strongly of the former northern pine forest.
Heirand there occur ponds, lakes and streams. The ponds are occupied

by Toxodium or by NyWta, depending upon the character of the pond.

Along Vhe streams are found hard woods of various species.
Toward the south below latitude 26 1/2 degrees occurs the slash

_pine or Cuban pine, P. Elliottii. The general aspect of this is the
Same as that of its more northern corgenor, P. Palustria. In the
densest of these forests the undergrowth is almost entirely absent.
Throughout the entire peninsular region Serenoa serulata occurs as

one oi the undergrowtns. Pteridium condatum also come in as a p

prominent feature in the Pinus Elliottii forests.
It is difficult to estimate the total area of this formation

but it certainly covers 75 *0e"s of the peninsular if we except the

Everglade region. One rarely meets shrubs that grow more than.30 or

40 inches high and these are usually characteristics of this formation.

Wees where the species attain the size of trees in the hammock

formation they remain stunted shrubs in the piney woods. As illustra-

tion of this peculiar dwarfy effect we have retotium MWtopium,
which makes a tree often $0 or more feet tall in the hammock but
remains a shrub less than three feet tall in the pine wood. in the
latter situation it proauees a large stumplike growth from which

extreme cases may reacn 15 degrees F. It rarely rises above 95

degrees k. with the extreme at 101 degrees Throughout the southern
extremity tne temperature rarely goes down to freezing and rarely
above 95 degrees F.
The rainfall for the northern section is rauner uncertain as to
time of occurrence. The average annual amount being about 50 incnes.
For the southern section, the average annual rainfall is about

60 inches occurring mostly during tne summer months. the fall,
winter and spring months are usually dry. For these the average

is about 2 1/2 inches per month.
If we keep the map of Florida in mind we will see that it is a

Mather broad peninsular with no elevations rising above 375 teet.
Consequently, the climate cannot be influenced preceptibly by the
altitude. The state, however, stretches through 5 1/2 degrees of
latitude wnich nas a very perceptible influence on the vegetation.
The southern portion of the state is still further favored by the

presence of the Gulf stream which flows along the banks and strikes
the coast at latitude 27 degrees. The soil is uniformly sandy.


This formation occurasas islands in the extensive piney woods

The areas are very sharply defined as a rule and nearly always of a
circular shape. The exceptions to this rule occurs when the

hammocks border a body of water. The pine trees are doubtless the

first to occur from a historic point of view. This seems to be

borne out strongly by the fact that the portion of the peninsular

that is geographically the oldest, contains the most extensive

hammocks. In the southern portion, on the border of the Everglades

the hammocks are very small rarely more than a few acres in extent;

while in the northern portion they extend for miles.
SPhytologically, the hammock is the richest formation. The

total area amounts to only a small per cent of the tote&, yet

contains more than 80 r cent of the plant species.

The most surprising fact is that the soil of the hammock

is no different from that of the pine woods, yet the effect on the

6 ,native vegetation is most striking.

SThe hammocks are characterized by the presence or broad leaved

trees, shrubs, and vines. Quertus Virgir!iana is one of the dominant

species. in the northern portion of the peninsula i:-few pine trees

occar in them but in the southern portion where the species of

pines are fewer, a pine tree is almost never known to occur in a

hammock. Pinus palustris, I'. Taeda, P. Clousa,and P.,lliottii very

rarely occur in hammock formation while P. Glabra and P. Echinata

rather prefer the hammook,

The ooast of Florida from latitude 29' on the east to 28' on

the west is practically lined with this growth. The plants belonging

to this formation not only occur along the sea byt extend up into
the brackish waters of the many estuaries. In many cases the

islands shown on maps are no more than acres of mud held in place

by the interlacing brace-like roots of Rhizophos Mangle. This species

st usually t e dominant one. ose nucf era is conspicuous below

lstitiade 25'. Other rather constant species are Laguncularis
ra acemosa, canocorpus erecta and Aricenia nitida. Rhabdadenia

The northern tier of counties beginning with Baker, about for-W

miles west of Jacksonville to Pensacola partake so much of the nature

of the adjoining states to the north, this portion may be called

Northern Florida and is not considered in this discussion.

The general trend of the peninsula as we all know, is nearly

southward. The highest lands accur west of a line drawn down the

middle of tne peninsula. This is the primary axis of the peninsula.

The elevation of this- region varies from about sea level to rarely

more thtn two hundred feet.

East of the primary axis aid running parallel to it is a secondary

axis, varying in width up to about forty miles. Lying between these

axs6 is the St. Jons. River and a series of Lakes terminating in

Okeechohee, at the northern border of the everglades: the st. Johns

river-is- really only a series of fresh water lakes connected by wide

streams. The source of the St. eJhns River is only about twenty

feet above sea level and as it is over 200 miles long measured by its

tortuous route to the ocean, we see that there is no chance for rapid

flowing streams.

Along the east coast is a series of salt water lagoons usually

spoken or as rivers. tozairs-ihe east of tnese lagoons are narrow

islands which rise only a few feet above sea level. On these s W

arise twigs producting flowers and fruit. Serenoa serrulata often

produces standing trunks ten or more feet tall in hammooks, while

in the piney woods the trunks creep on the ground or even remain

under ground,

Ii Hammocks (3)

constitution of hammock and of pine woods soil is round on the grouns
of the subtropical laboratory. A portion of the area was originally

covered with hammock, another portion with pine woods. Rows of
citrus hybrids and other plants are planted so as to cress from the

pine woods areas to tne hammock area. Yet no difference can be
detected in the vigor or vitality of the plants located on what was
originally very different plant formation. Let me make my meaning
clear at this point. I mean to say that -rigirally there was no
difference in the soil of the nammock formation and the pine woods

formation and that the increased productiveness of the hammock soil

Sis to be credited entirely to tne presence of the hard wood species.
Artificial hammocks are frequently established and they not only are

able to maintain themselves but may become aggressive.
The origin of a hammock as I take it is entirely a matter

accident. In south Floridawhere hammocks are or smallest size,

Quercus Virginiana, is the nucleus, most frequently, about whidh
r elements are assembled. It should net be inferred, however,
t this species is the only one that can start a nammock, but that
it seems especially well adapted for the task in peninsular Mlorida.
