Plants in Hawai‘i, as elsewhere, have certain environmental requirements from their habitats which can be affected by changes in climatic conditions and resource competition with other species. It is important to understand the requirements of targeted conservation species as well as how they may respond to likely climate changes.

Stream in Hawaii
3/18/2016

In Hawai‘i, the beneficial uses of streams include supplying freshwater for irrigation and domestic needs, providing for traditional Hawaiian practices, and maintaining habitat for native stream fauna. Maoya Bassiouni (USGS Pacific Islands Water Science Center) will present her updated findings for the impacts of projected rainfall on streams in the Hawaiian Islands entitled Sensitivity of Low Flows to Rainfall Variability in Ungaged Hawai‘i Streams.

Epiphytes
2/10/2016

EpiphyteHawaiʿi Island is home to many types of epiphytes, or specialized plants with adaptations that allow them to grow in the branches of trees. Epiphytes are sensitive to changes in air pollution, rainfall, fog, and cloud patterns due to their reliance on airborne water and nutrient sources, which makes them ideal for monitoring changes to climate and air quality in their habitat.

A new study, published in Climate Change Responses, points to how a shift in atmospheric circulation patterns may make a difference in the survival of silversword populations. Paul Krushelnycky, ecologist at University of Hawai‘i-Mānoa, led the research to study the effects of changes in temperature, precipitation, and solar radiation on populations of silverswords over 80 years of data records.

Climate change is expected to alter the seasonal and annual patterns of rainfall and temperature in the Hawaiian Islands. This is a major concern for resource managers at Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park (HAVO) where current preserves for listed species may no longer provide suitable habitat in the future as climate changes.
