There is this little 'endangered " meadow sparrow..... a bird that thrives in "open prairie"....that has caused the removal of 100 year old oak hammocks on WMAs the last several years....Not so sure the mixed habitat the oaks gave is such a bad thing....although fire was (and is) a positive for the eco systems in FL....some controversy over the removal of oak hammocks....mostly because a 50 acre oak hammock (said to be "too large") is surrounded by 1000 acres of pine flat woods and prairie habitat. My experience in FL is that the oak hammocks offer a lot of amenities to a large number of species...food and shelter, etc. Just as cypress heads do.
