Abstract

Spruce Creek Park, which is located in Port Orange, is being overrun with an invasive species called the Brazilian Pepper Plant. The Brazilian Pepper Plant grows rapidly in the park, which interferes with the growth of other species within the park. The Brazilian Pepper can be identified by its long, dark green leaves along with the berries that are attached to the leaf. The purpose of our project was to reclear the Brazilian Pepper from a designated site in the park, examine the changes in biodiversity because of the pepper plant removal, and recommending the next plant cluster in the park to be removed.
