A preliminary study of threatened species in Oceania found that approximately 28% were in threatened categories ; however, this study was not exclusively marine and assessed only five groups (all mammals, amphibians, birds, freshwater crabs, and hard corals). A comprehensive assessment of marine species is necessary for understanding Cited by: The calcified encrusting brown-algal genus Newhousia was collected in from two sites in Madang Lagoon, northern Papua New Guinea. This is the first report of that enigmatic genus since its original description in from Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands. Morphologies of thalli from both Papuan localities agree with the original diagnosis and the published figures of the Hawaiian Newhousia. genome evolution in relation to host-plant adaptation in four species of Hawaiian picture-wing Drosophila. Three of these species, Drosophila sproati, Drosophila murphyi, and Drosophila ochracea were sequenced for this study using de-novo whole-genome sequencing and assembly. All of these species are endemic to Hawaii Island and considered. Book digitized by Google from the library of Harvard University and uploaded to the Internet Archive by user tpb.

The geographic setting is also appropriate because of the scope of active and planned wind energy development in response to an ambitious renewable energy mandate for Hawaii (70% clean energy by ; Braccio and Finch ). The primary study objective was to assess the risk posed to Hawaiian hoary bats from wind turbines. the current high level of species diversity in the Hawaiian Drosophilidae. The AMC as a model for Hawaiian diversity This study focuses on the antopocerus, modified tarsus, and ciliated tarsus (AMC) clade, a radiation of 91 described species of Hawaiian Drosophila, to explore the factors that may have produced its current diversity.

An alien species refers to a species that is transported or established outside of its native range (Hawaii Department of Forest and Wildlife). This transport may or may not be intentional. An introduced species on the other hand, refers to an alien species that was transported intentionally. Schizoplasmodiopsis variabilis , a new species of the protostelid genus, was isolated from dead plant parts on a dicotyledonous tree in Honolulu, Hawaii. The trophic stage varies from uninucleate amoebae to plasmodial forms. The sporocarps are also variable, numerous spores lacking stalks but attached to the culture surface by short extensions of the sheath, others with stalks –18 Author: L.S. Olive.

Box native species can be defined as a species that has made it to Hawaii on its own, either by flying to Hawaii like the i’o (Hawaiian hawk), hitched a ride on birds like the ma’o (Hawaiian cotton), or floated here on the ocean like the hala (Hawaiian screw-pine).

Invasive species can affect native species by being better at gathering the same. Abstract. The genus Laupala is endemic to the rain forested islands of the Hawaiian archipelago. In his study Otte described 35 Laupala species, each restricted to a single island, and sometimes a single volcano.
