Hawaiian Biogeography: Evolution on a Hot Spot Archipelago
FOSSIL EVIDENCE FOR A DIVERSE BIOTA FROM KAUA‘I AND ITS TRANSFORMATION SINCE HUMAN ARRIVAL
Coring and excavations in a large sinkhole and cave system formed in an eolianite deposit on the south coast of Kaua‘i in the Hawaiian Islands reveal a fossil site with remarkable preservation and… Expand
Revised Classification of the Onagraceae
Recent molecular phylogenetic analyses in the plant family Onagraceae support the need for revisions in the family classification. In this paper we briefly survey the history of generic and… Expand

Knowledge of the evolutionary history of plants that are ecologically dominant in modern ecosystems is critical to understanding the historical development of those ecosystems. Metrosideros is a… Expand
Biogeographical and Ecological Correlates of Dioecy in the Hawaiian Flora
The angiosperm flora of the Hawaiian Islands, with its high incidence of dioecy, has been central in development of hypotheses about the evolution of dioecy. Based on a recent taxonomic treatment of… Expand

Origins of Dioecy in the Hawaiian Flora
Because of its presumed high levels of dioecy (separate male and female plants), study of the native Hawaiian angiosperm flora has been important in development of many hypotheses about conditions… Expand
Reconstructing ancestral patterns of colonization and dispersal in the Hawaiian understory tree genus Psychotria (Rubiaceae): a comparison of parsimony and likelihood approaches.
Systematic and biogeographical relationships within the Hawaiian clade of the pantropical understory shrub genus Psychotria (Rubiaceae) were investigated using phylogenetic analysis of 18S-26S… Expand
