Title: Seed dispersal methods in Hawaiian Metrosideros 
Author: Corn, Carolyn
Date: 1972-08
Publisher: Island Ecosystems IRP, U.S. International Biological Program
Citation: Corn C. 1972. Seed dispersal methods in Hawaiian Metrosideros. Honolulu (HI): Island Ecosystems IRP, U.S. International Biological Program. International Biological Program Technical Report, 6.
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.
