The Florida Keys are a small island chain along the Atlantic coast that preserve unique data on human-environmental interactions in prehistory, overlooked in earlier research but now the focus of new investigations. These investigations were spurred in part by the threat of sea level rise and the need to better understand human adaptations to changing ecosystems. This chapter presents a summary of previous research as well as preliminary results of new investigations into human adaptation in the Florida Keys during the pre-Columbian period.
