Basic History

Florida was discovered in 1513 by the Spanish explorers. Later, Florida would be held at different times by Spain and England until Spain finally sold it to the United States in 1819. Florida’s history in the early 19th century was marked by wars, which did not end until 1842. Florida was admitted to the Union in 1845 as a slaveholding state. In 1860 proslavery sentiment in Florida led the state to secede from the Union in 1861, but was readmitted to the Union in 1868.

Environmental History

Florida has seven floral zones. The state is known for its wide variety of palms like the royal and coconut. Pine, dense mangrove thickets are abundant. Hardwood forests include varieties of rattan, magnolia and oak. Rare plants include bougainvillea and oleander. All species of cacti and orchids are regarded as threatened, as are most types of ferns and palms. The white-tailed deer, wild hog, gray fox, raccoon, cottontail, swamp rabbits remain common.

Some Microplastics enter th...
