CTFS-ForestGEO: a worldwide network monitoring forests in an era of global change.
TLDR
The broad suite of measurements made at CTFS-ForestGEO sites makes it possible to investigate the complex ways in which global change is impacting forest dynamics, and continued monitoring will provide vital contributions to understanding worldwide forest diversity and dynamics in an era of global change.

Biology and Impacts of Pacific Island Invasive Species. 9. Capra hircus, the Feral Goat (Mammalia: Bovidae)1
TLDR
Impacts of feral goats on Pacific island ecosystems and management strategies available to control this invasive species are summarized. Expand
Effects of microsite, water, weeding, and direct seeding on the regeneration of native and alien species within a Hawaiian dry forest preserve
TLDR
It may be possible to restore Hawaii's degraded dry forests by manipulating these naturally recruiting species to create microsites favorable for the eventual re-establishment of the endangered native canopy tree flora. Expand
Effects of non-native grass invasion on aboveground carbon pools and tree population structure in a tropical dry forest of Hawaii
TLDR
Results indicate that large changes in the sequestration of carbon in aboveground biomass have occurred across the landscape following widespread grass invasion and conversion of Hawaiian dry forests to grasslands, and have important implications for quantifying the effects of invasive species and land cover change on ecosystem carbon storage at landscape and regional scales. Expand
Effects of light, alien grass, and native species additions on hawaiian dry forest restoration
TLDR
It is suggested that relatively simple techniques may be used to simultaneously establish populations of vig- orous understory native species and suppress alien grasses at relatively large spatial scales, and that remnant or newly created favorable microsites may be exploited to facilitate the establishment of rarer native overstory species. Expand
Global importance of large‐diameter trees
TLDR
Because large-diameter trees constitute roughly half of the mature forest biomass worldwide, their dynamics and sensitivities to environmental change represent potentially large controls on global forest carbon cycling. Expand
Physical dormancy in seeds of Dodonaea viscosa (Sapindales, Sapindaceae) from Hawaii
TLDR
It is suggested that boiling opened the ‘water gap’ in the seed coat and that water entered the seed only through this small opening, thereby accounting for the slow rate of imbibition and subsequent germination of D. viscosa seeds. Expand
The impact of an invasive African bunchgrass (Pennisetum setaceum) on water availability and productivity of canopy trees within a tropical dry forest in Hawaii
TLDR
It is demonstrated that invasion by Pennisetum has a pronounced negative impact on resource acquisition and use by the dominant native tree of this dry forest ecosystem, suggesting that long-term conservation of ecosystems threatened by invasions will ultimately require active management of the invading species. Expand
Mapping habitat suitability for at-risk plant species and its implications for restoration and reintroduction.
TLDR
The HSM can improve the survival of planted individuals, reduce the cost of restoration and reintroduction programs through targeted management activities in high-suitability areas, and expand the ability of managers to make landscape-scale decisions regarding land-use, land acquisition, and species recovery.
