    Exploring Mahogany Hammock

    The Mahogany Hammock habitat is found in many places within Florida's Everglades National Park. They are one of several kinds of tropical hardwood hammocks, having the typical teardrop shape and consisting primarily of hardwood, broadleaf trees. These tropical trees sit on slightly elevated patches of ground that are maintained by balanced water levels and activity of fire. Though the hammocks are generally resistant to fire because of the vegetation that grows there, fire serves a prevention for the tree islands to spread too far into the surrounding wetlands and open area.
