Hawaii Volcanoes National Park stable isotope values from Hawaii forest birds 2012

Blood and feathers were collected from Hawaii forest birds (Apapane and Hawaii Amakihi) in high elevation forest to assess evidence for altitudinal movement. Feathers, red blood cells and plasma were analyzed for hydrogen, carbon, and nitrogen stable isotope ratios, and these were used to infer changes in elevation and diet over time. For each species, at one of 3 sites, isotope v

Seedling Mortality of Ohia by Treatment Group at Keaukaha Military Reserve 2019-2020

This data release includes monthly census data of 120 out-planted ohia seedlings in different treatment groups and associated metadata from February 2019 - February 2020 at Keaukaha Military Reservation in Hilo, HI. Six seedlings each were planted around 20 focal trees, half of which tested positive for Rapid Ohia Death, half of which tested negative. Three of the six seedlings were weeded

Hawaiian hoary bat individual acoustic detections at wind turbines, Maui Island 2018

The Hawaiian hoary bat (Lasiurus cinereus semotus), a federally and state listed endangered subspecies, is the only extant native terrestrial mammal in the Hawaiian archipelago. It is an insectivorous, solitary and foliage-roosting species that generally roosts alone or in mother-pup family groups. This study examined the behavior of Hawaiian hoary bats at wind turbines operated by

Hawaii Island forest bird avian malaria detection using whole blood preserved in lysis buffer, 2005-2006

It is unclear whether DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) lysis buffers used for preservation of whole blood samples from Hawaiian forest birds cause denaturation and loss of antigen binding capability of antibody molecules. If their antigen binding capability is not affected, then the samples can be used in serological assays to provide an independent assessment of the accuracy of PCR (polymeras
