The Plants and Vegetation of Maunakea from Tree-line to Summit
Location: UH Hilo Wentworth Hall Room #1
Dr. Grant Gerrish will relate the adventure of leading the team that completed the first botanical baseline survey of Maunakea in 2011, and describe the landscapes and many of the plant and lichen species encountered from the māmane woodlands to the “stone desert” at the summit. He will discuss the biogeographical factors that determine which native plant species can survive the incredibly harsh environment at the summit and the unique evolutionary forces that have brought forth species endemic to Maunakea.
Dr. Gerrish will also discuss the impact of human activity and present a new scheme to classify the vegetation and communities that differs from the previously used classification.
