Territory and Visitation Rate
Swamp territory is usually defined by USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 9 to 11.
A person has a chance of observing at least one Swamp Deer in their lifetime.
Nonnative herbivores and predators include the Canadian Lynx, Fisher Cat, the Florida Manatee, the Musk Ox, the Snowshoe Hare, the Swamp Rabbit and the White-Tailed Deer.
Hiding spots where deer seek shade, particularly in areas that have never been altered for agriculture.
Swamp Tree Plantings
One very important requirement for maintaining the Swamp Forest is to add nutrients, particularly nitrogen, to the water that runs through the system.
Addition of dissolved minerals is a prime consideration.
Water quality deteriorates through altered stream banks and low water levels, creating puddles that are less productive.
Alteration of stream banks in the surrounding area from swales and swales requires continued attention to lower the possibility of water quality deterioration.
Deer browse the young growth of plants on the lower end of the swale. If the vegetation in the swale is lacking, deer may travel more than 30 feet on a single hop.
On smaller streams, more efficient stream designs, such as swales, are effective in providing healthy flows.
Surface Flow Design
Deer browse the lower growing plants, therefore light soil structure, like crushed rock, will allow more space and a better range of plants for deer to browse.
Alteration of Stream Banks
Deer will seek out trees with thick bark to provide shade from the hot Florida sun, and may use fallen trees as platforms from which to eat, drink or sunbathe.
Deer use excavations to obtain food and shelter.
Deer Use in the Swamp Forest
Remove plants that deer will eat and encourage growth of vegetation that deer will not.
