The objective of this research is to provide ecosystem managers with methylmercury degradation rate data from a number of study sites that represent a diversity of hydrologic and nutrient regimes common to the Everglades. Further, our focus is on better understanding the microbial and geochemical controls regulating methylmercury degradation. At present, little is known regarding the specific factors influencing this process in natural systems.
