Mangrove habitats are coastal wetlands that make up less than 2% of marine environments. In the United States, mangrove habitats are located along the coast of Florida. These mangrove habitats are important because they protect the coast from erosion, are habitats to many organisms, and serve as a filter to rid carbon dioxide. It is important to monitor anthropogenic disturbances since mangroves play a crucial role in the ecosystem. This study will display geographic data of agricultural runoff over time. It will show total nitrogen and phosphorus inputted into the environment over about a ten year time frame in Volusia County, Florida. It will help show how agricultural runoff can cause possible transgenerational effects in organisms that live in these areas by showing areas of high runoff overtime.
