First National Conference on Ecosystem Restoration
December 6-10, 2004 in Lake Buena Vista, Florida

N C E R LogoThis First National Conference on Ecosystem Restoration (NCER) will enable national and international information exchange on many issues involved in landscape-scale ecosystem restoration.

NCER will be held December 6-10, 2004 in Orlando, Florida at the Wyndham Palace, which provides a centralized setting and more than 200,000 square feet of meeting space to comfortably accommodate our educational sessions, workshops, poster displays and exhibits.

Welcome to the South Florida Information Access (SOFIA) Website. South Florida is one of several study areas within the USGS Priority Ecosystems Science Program (PES; formerly the "Place-Based Studies Program"). This Program was established to enable the USGS to enhance its scientific assistance to resource managers who require an improved scientific information base to resolve or prevent complex resource conflicts or environmental problems in specific ecosystem sites.

For an overview of the website, you can either search the site for specific words or topics, or use the site map. You can access information on projects by title, investigator, or by region. The Database contains data related to all of the projects. We also have a publications page that contains Open File Reports, Fact Sheets, and other publications for our projects.
