Comments: Dry hammock - Florida Keys. There is another important but lesser-known ecosystem in extreme South Florida and the Florida Keys that recalls more of a West Indian influence: tropical hardwood hammocks. A hammock in this use of the word describes a dense hardwood stand of trees bordered by a wetland. And a tropical hardwood hammock, more specifically, is a forest comprised of tree species such as Gumbo Limbo, Poisonwood, Blolly, Wild Dilly, and Pigeon Plum, among others. In the Keys, it is often the habitat just inland from the mangroves of the coastline and estuaries. Hammocks grow on elevated areas, often just a few inches high, surrounded by wetlands that are too wet to support them. GTPhoto is a wonderful knowledge/photo agency with all award winning photographers, filmmakers, authors, scientists & guides covering our world - absolute Florida specialists, topside & underwater.
