Abstract: The Island Ecosystems Integrated Research Program (IRP) of the US Contribution to the International Biological Program (IBP) has been active for 18 months. The program is centered in Hawaii. The original name of the program, HAWAII TERRESTRIAL BIOLOGY SUBPROGRAM was changed early last year to ISLAND ECOSYSTEM STABILITY AND EVOLUTION SUBPROGRAM. The change of name was made to indicate more clearly the main objectives of the program, which are to study the ecology and evolution of island biota and communities and to interpret these in the context of island ecosystems stability. Moreover, our program is concerned with developing principles that are not only applicable to the Hawaiian Islands, but to island ecosystems in general. The program emphasis is on basic research with an equally strong orientation to the solution of regional problems and the practical issues of today wherever they are concerned with the interaction of man and the biological resources of islands.
