IMUA III: Pacific High Island Evolutionary Biogeography: Impacts of Invasive Species, Anthropogenic Activity and Climate Change on Hawaiian Focal Species

As a unique island ecosystem, Hawai‘i possesses an extraordinary diversity of natural resources and attributes (geological, marine, terrestrial, atmospheric, and biological). The primary focus of IMUA III is to develop Hawai‘i’s scientific and technological capabilities in order to understand how invasive species, human-related activities and climate change impact the biodiversity, ecosystem function and current or potential use of certain endemic Hawaiian species. Results of these studies will be important for understanding both short-term and long-term changes in Hawai‘i and the impacts of human activities on tropical ecosystems world-wide.

IMUA III is designed to expand innovative areas of research and education as well as improve relationships between researchers and local communities. Integral components of this...
