ʻŌhiʻa Lehua Rainforest: Born Among Hawaiian Volcanoes, Evolved in Isolation

Product Description

In the early 1970s, a multidisciplinary team of forest biologists began a study of Hawaiian ecosystems under the International Biological Program (IBP). Research focus was on the intact native ecosystems in and around Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, in particular the ʻōhiʻa lehua (Metrosiderous polymorpha) rainforest. Patches of dead ʻōhiʻa stands had been reported from the windward slopes of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. Subsequent air photo analyses by a team of US and Hawaiʻi State foresters discovered rapidly spreading ʻōhiʻa dieback, also called ʻōhiʻa forest decline. It was suspected that a killer disease would destroy the Hawaiian rainforest in the next 15-25 years. Ecological research continued with a focus on the dynamics of the Hawaiian rainforest. This book explains what really happened and why the ʻōhiʻa rainforest survived intact, as everyone can witness today. Dieter Mueller-Dombois
