The Past And Present Status Of The Alligator In Florida

Available information concerning the past and present alligator (Alli~otor mississippiensis) populations in Florida are summarized. Population status is described on the basis of past harvest records, complaint rates, population surveys and opinions of hunters, buyers, and biologists. Based on these data it appears probable that the alligator's past population status was somewhat less serious than previously supposed and the future of the alligator appears secure.
