Abstract/Description: The Jupiter Inlet I site is situated between the Atlantic coast and the LoxahatcheeRiver in southeast Florida. Although excavations were previously conducted, faunalremains were not systematically collected until recently. Molluscan remains recovered in2010 are examined to reconstruct past ecological habitats, identify which water bodieswere used for extracting resources, and document changes in molluscan species overtime. Based upon identifications, only brackish and marine species are represented,indicating that the Loxahatchee River was brackish rather than freshwater during the timeof occupation and that the site inhabitants were collecting mollusks from both the lagoonand coastal waters.
