Extractions: Protecting crops from occasional frost and freezes has been a continual problem for vegetable growers throughout Florida. Several options are available including sprinkler irrigation, soil banking, row covers, raising water table, and cover crops. Frost and freeze protection consists of various methods to protect plants from damage from freezing temperatures. The best method of frost-freeze protection is proper site selection. Visualizing the flow of cold air, as if it were water, and its possible buildup in low spots or behind cold air dams is the most effective site selection method. If a site has good cold air drainage, then it is likely a good production site as far as frost-freeze damage is concerned. Use soil banking (covering the crop with soil) for crops such as potatoes which have large energy reserves in the seed piece to grow out from the soil covering. Early melons, sweet corn, or beans may be planted in a small trench to protect seedlings from frost by the warm surrounding soil mass.

Extractions: Site Planning and Tree Protection for the New Home F. J. Regulski, Jr. Much of the value of a home can be attributed to its location or setting. Homes with views of lakes, beaches, rivers, or other natural environments have long been prized as being more valuable than similar homes located on less distinctive land. The value of a home can also be greatly affected by the trees which surround it. A tree which takes 20 or more years to reach maturity can be considered an irreplaceable asset to a home since the average homeowner lives in a home for just 3 years. The International Society of Arboriculture has established standards which estimate the value of a tree on criteria such as size, species, condition, and location. The trees on a site not only add value to a home but also provide shade to reduce summer cooling costs and block winter winds to reduce heat loss. Information in this publication can guide present and prospective homeowners in the use of precautions and procedures when developing land for a homesite. Requirements For Healthy Trees Trees have certain requirements for maintaining normal healthy growth and development. Trees absorb water, minerals, and oxygen from the surrounding soil through their roots. To do this efficiently, water and oxygen must be in proper balance in the soil. This balance is also important to the many beneficial organisms and microorganisms which inhabit the soil around a tree's roots. If this balance is disrupted, accumulations of noxious gases and chemicals will occur and might depress normal plant growth. The soil most important to a tree's root growth encompasses an area equal to the spread of its branches (drip line) and 18 inches in depth. However, many species of trees, especially forest trees, have most of their feeder roots in the upper 6 to 8 inches. These trees are very sensitive to soil disturbances. Any injury to the roots also greatly reduces water and oxygen absorption by the roots.

Extractions: NPS Home Biologic Resources NPS Biology Spiders and Scorpions This module is intended to serve as a source of basic information needed to implement an integrated pest management program for spiders and scorpions. Any pest management plan or activity must be formulated within the framework of the management zones where it will be implemented. Full consideration must be given to threatened and endangered species, natural and cultural resources, human health and safety, and the legal mandates of the individual parks. Recommendations in this module must be evaluated and applied in relation to these broader considerations. Most people are familiar with the general appearance of both spiders and scorpions. Spiders and scorpions are both arachnids, which is a group of animals that also includes mites, ticks, and harvestmen (daddy longlegs). The arachnids are closely related to insects. Both spiders and scorpions, like insects, have a hard external body, but spiders and scorpions have four pairs of legs while insects have three pairs.
