Highlights Among Northeast Florida Non-marine Mollusk Survey Locations

    Since 1974 over 100 non-marine survey sites have been established in Duval and its three surrounding counties (St. Johns, Clay, and Nassau). Some of these have been re-surveyed at least on one occasion. The following reports highlight the more productive survey areas and may provide some insight into the relative frequency of some species, particularly terrestrial snails, and provide an indication of ecological preferences.

Freedom Commerce Center Tract (9500 block of Phillips Highway (US-1))
    The first survey of this area was conducted during 2003, a follow-up survey conducted in 2005, and periodic surveys conducted since that time and ongoing as of November, 2007. Species listed were found by both examination of a soil/vegetation sample under a microscope and by visual reconnaissance.  Freedom Commerce Center Tract additional information | Annotated Freedom Commerce Center Tract Species List
