It was followed by the Everglades REC in Belle Glade, North Florida REC in Quincy, and the Tropical REC in Homestead, all of which were established in the 1920s.

Thus we found it necessary to adjust emissions seasonally with regionally varying scaling factors. Moreover, exchanging the original resistance-type dry deposition scheme with a parameterization for CO uptake by oxidation from soil bacteria and microbes reduced the boreal winter dry deposition fluxes and could partly correct for the model bias Durian: King of Tropical Fruit.

Tropical Agriculture: The Development of Production

It is sometimes called crosier since it resembles a shepherd's crook or a bishop's staff. Spores dropped from the fronds of an established fern have developed prothallium on the gravel surface. Each prothallium produces male and female organs (sexual or gametophyte stage). When fertilization of the female gametophyte occurs, small plants then begin to develop as shown Tropical Moist Forest Silviculture and Management: A History of Success and Failure (Cab International Publication).

Those which succeeded provided important sources of agricultural knowledge and innovation and formed the basis for an interest in agricultural societies and agricultural instruction. Some attempts were also undertaken to improve "native agriculture."
