Reproductive response to nitrogen and phosphorus fertilization along the Hawaiian archipelago’s natural soil fertility gradient
This work investigates whether the reproductive response of M. polymorpha mirrors the previously found vegetative productivity and foliar nutrient responses, by quantifying inflorescence and seed productivity, and nutrient concentration of reproductive structures. Expand
Global effects of non‐native tree species on multiple ecosystem services
A global assessment of NNT effects on the three main categories of ecosystem services, including regulating (RES), provisioning and cultural services (PES) and on an ecosystem disservice (EDS), and a quantitative understanding of the complex synergies, trade‐offs and context dependencies involved is provided.

Detecting Terrestrial Nutrient Limitation: A Global Meta-Analysis of Foliar Nutrient Concentrations after Fertilization
A meta-analysis of response ratios of foliar nitrogen and phosphorus after addition of fertilizer of nitrogen, phosphorus, or the two elements in combination in relation to climate, ecosystem type, life form, family, and methodological factors shows differences in RRN and RRP were most significant across ecosystem types, plant families, life forms, and between competitive environments.

Evaluating nurse plants for restoring native woody species to degraded subtropical woodlands
It is found that the two native nurse shrubs recruit their own offspring, but do not act as establishment nodes for other species, and outplanting will be necessary to increase abundance and diversity of native woody species. Expand
Linking plant and animal functional diversity with an experimental community restoration in a Hawaiian lowland wet forest
It is argued that a more comprehensive evaluation of restoration accounts for both functional diversity and the multi-trophic nature of animal and plant communities. Expand
Influence of Light and Substrate Conditions on Regeneration of Native Tree Saplings in the Hawaiian Lowland Wet Forest1
Abstract: Understanding microsite preferences of species at the sapling stage is crucial for successful forest restoration, as efforts can be concentrated onto the most promising sites, and invadedExpand
