Abstract: An ecological assessment was performed on a Florida stormwater detention pond. A catalogue of plant and animal life was created. Plant life was randomly sampled using a 1 m2 grid. Vertebrate populations, and their behaviors, were recorded on a daily basis. Aquatic macroinvertebrates were sampled along a transect at varying depths using a plankton net. Invertebrates were sorted by morphological distinctions and a measure of diversity was determined using Cairns' Sequential Comparison Index. In addition, water samples were tested for levels of dissolved oxygen, temperature, pH, nitrate and phosphate, cyanide, chromium and copper. The possible effects of copper sulfate treatment on this ecosystem are discussed. This ecological assessment provides useful data for future studies of this unique ecosystem. Using the compiled data, ecologically sound techniques for future pond management are suggested.
