Evaluation of a non-point source pollution model, AnnAGNPS, in a tropical watershed
The AnnAGNPS model performed reasonably well, and it can be used as a management tool on tropical watersheds to estimate and compare sediment loads, and identify ''hot spots'' on the landscape. Expand
Modeling Hawaiian Ecosystem Degradation due to Invasive Plants under Current and Future Climates
This work will help determine the vulnerability of native-dominated ecosystems to the combined threats of climate change and invasive species, and thus help prioritize ecosystem and species management actions. Expand
Conservation status and recovery strategies for endemic Hawaiian birds
Populations of endemic Hawaiian birds declined catastrophically following the colonization of the islands by Polynesians and later cultures. Extinction is still occurring, and recovery programs areExpand
Annual variation in the distribution, abundance, and habitat response of the palila (Loxioides bailleui)
--We studied the distribution, population size, and habitat response of the Palila (Loxioides bailleui) during the 1980-1984 nonbreeding seasons to infer factors that limit the population and toExpand
Large-Scale Range Collapse of Hawaiian Forest Birds under Climate Change and the Need 21st Century Conservation Options
It is illustrated that, under a likely scenario of continued disease-driven distribution limitation, all 10 species with highly reliable models are expected to lose >50% of their range by 2100, and the types of additional conservation actions practitioners will likely need to consider are described, while results help with such considerations.

Baseline and projected future carbon storage and carbon fluxes in ecosystems of Hawai‘i
This is the fifth regional report produced by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) as part of the national LandCarbon program (https://www2.usgs.gov/climate_landuse/land_ carbon/). As with priorExpand
