slide3The coastal mangrove reaches of the Everglades are subject to major disturbances, including extreme cold events. Such a 100‐year extreme cold spell affected the area in January 2010. As part of the Special Feature: Extreme Cold Spells in the June 2016 issue of Ecosphere, Dr. Jennifer Rehage et al. found that cold spells can knock back nonnative fish populations in these ecotonal habitats (Volume 7, Issue 6, Article 01268; e01268.10.1002/ecs2.1268). Resilience to the events varies in space, likely a result of proximity to refuge habitats. See here for a link to the article/journal in the Ecological Society of America (ESA) webpage.
