Biogeographical and Ecological Correlates of Dioecy in the Hawaiian Flora

Because the Hawaiian angiosperm flora originated from a minimum of only 291 colonists, many of the associations of dimorphism with ecological traits occur because of the influence of only a few species-rich lineages, and Baker's law is not supported within the Hawaiian Islands.

Origins of Dioecy in the Hawaiian Flora
Dioecy in the Hawaiian Islands is a result of both dimorphic colonists as well as evolution of dioecY in Hawaiian lineages from hermaphroditic colonists, the highest of any known flora worldwide.
ONTOGENY OF FOLIAR VENATION IN EUPHORBIA FORBESII
- D. Herbst
- 1 September 1972
Six species of Euphorbia endemic to the Hawaiian Islands have disjunct veins as a normal component of their foliar anatomy. An ontogenic study of the foliar venation of one of these species, E.…

Evolution of Dioecy in Schiedea (Caryophyllaceae: Alsinoideae) in the Hawaiian Islands: Biogeographical and Ecological Factors
It appears likely that dicliny has evolved at least three and possibly six times in Schiedea, and among extant species those with hermaphroditic breeding systems are more likely to occur on more than a single island.
Disjunct Foliar Veins in Hawaiian Euphorbias

Isolated segments of veins occur in the leaf mesophyll of several Hawaiian species of Euphorbia and appear to consist entirely of tracheids, a normal feature of the anatomy of species native to mesic and wet areas, but not to xeric, dry habitats.
