  • Kile, GA (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    Species of the woody root rot fungus Armillaria are indigenous in cool temperate rain forest, mixed forest, and wet and dry sclerophyll eucalypt forests in Australia. Four species have been described or identified from ...
  • Mueller-Dombois, Dieter (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    Massive tree dieback has occurred periodically in the Hawaiian montane rain forest. The species mainly involved is Metrosideros polymorpha, which is the prevailing upper canopy tree species throughout most of this ...
  • Skipworth, JP (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    Accelerated mortality is attributed to an unusually high percentage of old trees, an abundance of pathogenic fungi, and a putative lowering of water tables in the 1960s. There is some evidence to suggest that this may ...
  • Evenson, William E (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    Studies of climatic fluctuations on the island of Hawai'i have been undertaken using data from 113 climatological stations on the windward slopes of Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, and Kilauea. Both monthly rainfall and mean ...
  • Mueller-Dombois, Dieter (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
  • Plazer, C (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    Symptoms in the crowns of Eucalyptus obliqua and E. regnans trees affected by "regrowth dieback" are reevaluated and amplified using tree climbing, tree felling, and optical study methods. A distinction is made between the ...
  • Payton, IJ (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    Old and young trees of southern rata (Metrosideros umbel/ata) were artificially defoliated to examine their response to foliage loss. Partial (50%) or total defoliation before budbreak depressed shoot growth more markedly ...
  • Wardle, JA; Allen, RB (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-09)
    Dieback has been observed in New Zealand Nothofagus forests for some time, and a number of causal factors have been recognized. Some understanding of the effects of dieback on forest structure has been gained in a study ...
  • Stemmermann, Lani (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    'Ohi'a (Metrosideros polymorpha) is the dominant rain forest tree species in Hawai'i. It has long impressed botanists for its morphological variability and ecological amplitude. The present study has documented differences ...
  • Stewart, Glenn H; Veblen, Thomas T (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    Many researchers in New Zealand have accepted equilibrium models of vegetation change that assume within-stand self-replacement of the dominant tree species as the norm. Consequently, many discontinuous stand structures ...
  • Mueller-Dombois, Dieter (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
  • Arentz, Frans (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    The phenomenon of patch dieback in stands of Nothofagus on Mt. Giluwe, in the southern highlands of Papua New Guinea, is described. Ecological studies that have been carried out are reviewed. Based upon the results of ...
  • Balakrishnan, Nadarajah; Mueller-Dombois, Dieter (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    A soil and foliar nutrient analysis was carried out in the Hawaiian Metrosideros rain forest for the purposes of elucidating a previously published physical habitat classification and for finding an explanation for the ...
  • Jacobi, James D; Gerrish, Grant; Mueller-Dombois, Dieter (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    Approximately 50,000 ha of native '6hi'a (Metrosideros polymorpha Gaud.) forest on the island of Hawai'i experienced a drastic reduction (dieback) of the tree canopy between 1954 and 1977. Concern for the management of ...
  • Batcheler, CL (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    Browsing by the introduced Australian brush-tailed possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) has been generally accepted in New Zealand during the past 30 yr as the principal cause of damage to hardwood forests dominated by rata ...
  • Allen, RB; Rose, AB (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    During the 1950s, dieback of southern rata (Metrosideros umbel/ata) and kamahi (Weinmannia racemosa) was documented in the conifer/ hardwood forests of the Kokatahi and Fox catchments in Westland, New Zealand. Thirty ...
  • Walker, J; Thompson, CH; Jehne, W (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    A conceptual model that provides a means of viewing changes in vegetation as responses to weathering of soil mantles over thousands of years has been developed from investigations of vegetation communities on a ...
  • Shaw, WB (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    Tropical cyclones usually form between 10° and 20° latitude but frequently move as far south as New Zealand. Cyclone Bernie, in April 1982, caused extensive damage in central North Island forests. Four other severe tropical ...
  • Jane, GT; Green, TGA (University of Hawai'i Press, 1983-10)
    Areas of vegetation mortality have been recognized in the upland forests of the Kaimai Ranges, North Island, New Zealand. The mortality is not confined to any particular vegetation type, but occurs above a critical ...
