Title: Hybrid Hibiscadelphus (Malvaceae) in the Hawaiian Islands 
Author: Baker, James K.; Allen, Suzy
Date: 1977-07
Publisher: University of Hawaii Press
Citation: Baker JK, Allen S. 1977. Hybrid Hibiscadelphus (Malvaceae) in the Hawaiian Islands. Pac Sci 31(3): 285-291.
Abstract: First- and second-generation hybrids of Hibiscadelphus
giffardianus Rock and H. hualalaiensis Rock have been found in Hawaii
Volcanoes National Park, and elsewhere in the Hawaiian Islands. They are
under cultivation from interspecifically cross-fertilized seed which occurred on
parent trees within the park. A history of parent and hybrid species is given,
and floral characteristics are analyzed. Hybrid occurrence and the implications
to natural resource management in trying to preserve the integrity of native
Hawaiian species and ecosystems are discussed.
