How has the physical landscape of central Florida been changed by human occupancy?

To determine

The ways in which the physical landscape of central Florida have been changed by human occupancy.


The humid subtropical regions are of massive agricultural value because of their favorable moisture and temperature characteristics despite of any available soil resource.  People used these favorable conditions for cultivation of commercial crops, such as tobacco and cotton in the United States.

The slash pines and long-leaf of the southeastern United States are a source of lumber and the resinous products of the pine tree (resin, pitch, turpentine, and tar). The absence of moisture and temperature limits strongly favors forest growth. Since the trees grow two to four times faster than in colder regions in the humid subtropical climate, human occupancy removed the original forest vegetation for agriculture. They planted trees are harvested in much less time than in cooler forested regions, which offer distinct commercial benefits...
