A Review of the Demographic Features of Hawaiian Green Turtles (Chelonia mydas)
TLDR
This review summarizes all existing data and knowledge of the demographic variables and their stochasticity of Hawaiian green turtles and associated data streams relating to morphometrics, maturity, nest dynamics, sex ratio, as well as population growth and viability.
Sailing through Time: A Historical Examination of the Explorations and Expeditions of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument
Many decades of exploration and documentation of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI) have shown dynamic and pristine ecosystems that have been a source of cultural, economic and scientific
Inter‐island movements and population differentiation in a pelagic seabird
TLDR
The persistence of genetic structure among breeding colonies despite significant interisland movements suggests limits to the effectiveness of migration as a homogenizing force in this broadly distributed, extremely mobile species.
Effects of Green Turtle Fibropapillomatosis on the Reproductive Success and Egg Composition of Green Turtles (Chelonia Mydas) Nesting at French Frigate Shoals, Hawaiian Islands National Wildlife Refuge
TLDR
Nesting turtles with FP did have low overall tumor scores, but appeared to have slightly impaired reproductive success, and Turtles with FP may place more energy into individual eggs versus turtles without FP to compensate for the decreased clutch size.

SECOND RECORD OF BRYAN'S SHEARWATER PUFFINUS BRYANI FROM MIDWAY ATOLL, WITH NOTES ON HABITAT SELECTION, VOCALIZATIONS AND AT-SEA DISTRIBUTION
TLDR
A new species of Procellariiforme, Bryan’s Shearwater Puffinus bryani, was described by Pyle et al. (2011) based on a specimen collected by one of us on 18 February 1963 on Midway Atoll, Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, which indicates that breeding likely occurs during winter in these islands.
Population Dynamics of Hawaiian Seabird Colonies Vulnerable to Sea‐Level Rise
TLDR
This case study used French Frigate Shoals, the largest atoll in the Hawaiian Archipelago, as a case study to explore the population dynamics of seabird colonies and the potential effects sea-level rise may have on these rookeries, and found evidence of density dependence.
Potential effects of sea level rise on the terrestrial habitats of endangered and endemic megafauna in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands
Climate models predict that global average sea level may rise considerably this century, potentially affecting species that rely on coastal habitat. The Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI) have high
