    Description

    Watersheds dominated by forest cover typically have high quality water. In managed forests, fertilizers may be periodically applied during the growing period. The Florida Forest Service has developed Best Management Practices (BMPs) for managed forests to minimize the potential impacts of forestry operations, including fertilization, to forest streams and maintain water quality. However, a comprehensive study evaluating stream condition (i.e. water quality and biota) prior to, during, and following fertilization in the context of BMPs and natural variability has not been conducted.
