Abstract: Hawaiian Metrosideros seeds need 3 to 12 miles per hour wind velocity to become airborne, and can survive -30 deg C temperatures for at least 6 hours. They also survive sea water soaking for 30 days followed by an additional 7 day desiccation period. These conditions substantiate a belief that Metrosideros species arrived in the islands by wind dispersal, and can also travel shorter distances by water currents.
