Who We Are

SESC About Us banner

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Wetland and Aquatic Research Center - Florida is a research center that studies the biology and ecology of aquatic environments in the United States and around the world. This brochure offers a glimpse of the diverse issues addressed by WARC researchers.

Founded in 2009, WARC-FL was created to bring together scientific experts in biology and ecology throughout the Southeastern U.S. and Caribbean. The Centerís roots lie in U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Park Service research units that were brought into the USGS as the Biological Resources Division in 1994. For almost a decade, research was carried out through the USGS Florida Integrated Science Center, which cultivated an integrated approach to earth and environmental science that focused on problems facing society. The Center still supports the Department of the Interior commitment to serve communities by providing scientific information to the public.

WARC-FL scientists apply their expertise to a variety of wetland and aquatic research and monitoring issues that require coordinated, integrated efforts to better understand natural environments. By increasing basic understanding of the biology of important species and broader ecological processes, this research provides information to policy-makers and aids managers in their stewardship of natural resources and regulatory functions.
