This book is the monograph of the eastern diamondback rattlesnake. Its publication is a culmination of over 40 years of long-term, in-depth study of the world’s largest rattlesnake, Crotalus adamanteus.
Private sports-hunting properties in Florida and Georgia provide unique opportunities for enhancing populations of several iconic species associated with longleaf pine ecosystems. For example, sports-hunting properties in the Red Hills region support the largest population of Red-cockaded Woodpeckers remaining on private lands as well as scores of additional rare species.
We have observed quite the shift in weather pattern over the course of the past few months, experiencing sporadic activity since September—periods of excessive rainfall and periods of little to no rainfall.
Coral Ardisia (Ardisia crenata) also known as Christmas or Coral Berry is becoming increasingly common throughout the Red Hills. This exotic invasive plant is typically found in wet, partially shaded areas near water but can escape these areas if the uplands are not burned frequently.
