The Interior Assemblage: After
(p.35), AMOCO Seminar on Stratigraphic Principles.
This assemblage is widely distributed through
the central part of Florida Bay and seems to reflect the regime of fluctuating
conditions between the extremes found along the margins of the Everglades
to the north and the tidal areas to the south. It is characteristic
of the bulk of the mud bank areas except in their very widest and shallowest
parts. It appears to develop most characteristically in 1 - 6 feet of
water. It exists far to the south along the tops of banks even where
they are bordered by other, more open biotas.
