Summary

Temperature is an important factor in understanding biogeography and species composition. In south Florida, non-native fishes’ tolerance to low temperatures is a critical factor in delineating their geographic spread. We provide a literature review summarizing the current state of knowledge of low-temperature tolerances for all seventeen non-native fishes that have been found in Everglades National Park.

Purpose

These critical low temperature limits may inform the understanding of the ecological role or influence of non-native fishes and may lead to potential management opportunities and applications.
