Welcome

The Florida Springs Institute is named after the late Dr. Howard T. Odum, the Father of Springs Ecology, who first called the world's attention to the majesty and mystery of these unique and complex ecosystems. Our founder, Dr. Robert L. Knight, studied under the direction of Dr. Odum and has conducted follow-up studies of the ecology of 18 major springs in Florida. This website is a vital part of our mission to provide science-based education to the public and their leaders. We have gathered a collection of information about springs ecology so vast that you will find it necessary to stop by frequently. The Florida Springs Institute is a 5o1(c)(3) non-profit organization funded entirely through grants and private donations.
