Big Cypress National Preserve
Low, medium and high-intensity developments occupy 11%, 1%, and 1% of the watershed respectively. Collectively, development activities occupy 14% of the area (Kaur et al., 2011). Agricultural activities, mining, roads development, industrial and residential developments constitute the economic, agricultural and human activities in the area.
