Title: From the Brink of Extinction: Saving Rare Plants at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Speaker: Sierra McDaniel, Botanist, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Abstract: Some of the world’s rarest plants are found in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, a place where more than 100 years of preservation and protection efforts have created an optimal environment in which they can survive and thrive. The native silversword and lobelia lineages of Hawai‘i are spectacular examples of adaptive radiation, in which single colonizing ancestors have given rise to a stunning diversity of descendant species … yet they now include some of the world’s most critically imperiled plants. Over the past two decades, park managers have partnered with public and private organizations to pull these species back from the brink of extinction through large-scale plant reintroduction efforts. HVNP botanist Sierra McDaniel discusses and illustrates the value of integrating these crucial efforts with ongoing restoration activities across large landscapes.
