Agricultural Areas

Florida is an agricultural state. No matter where you go, you can find pastures, cropland and, in central and south Florida, citrus groves. Much of the state's farmland is former pine flatwoods, high pine, scrub, dry prairie, and freshwater wetlands. Usually, remnants of the native habitats remain in agricultural areas. These tend to be wetland areas that were difficult to drain when the land was first cleared.

While converting parts of these habitats into monocultures of crops, the man-made habitat opens the doors for at least some species to move in and prosper. Often you will find the species diversity in agricultural areas to be rather low but the number of individuals of each species to be unusually high.
