Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge forest restoration

Location: UH Hilo Science & Technology Building (STB) Room #108

Starting nearly 30 years ago, managers at Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge planted over 400,000 Acacia koa (koa) trees in abandoned pastures to facilitate forest regeneration. Their goal was to restore native forests in order to increase native bird populations at an altitude where avian malaria is rare. While planted trees seem to grow well, there has been very little natural recruitment of native understory plants (e.g. pilo, 'ōlapa).

In this talk Dr. Evan Rehm, Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology, University of California Santa Barbara, will discuss the various barriers that inhibit the development of native forests, hindering restoration efforts.
