A total of 52 groups of cypress knees consisting of 373 individuals was measured for height and water depth along the upper Suwannee River in Georgia and Florida and at Seashore State Park in Virginia. A highly significant positive correlation was found between the tallest cypress knee and greatest water depth of each group.
