University of Hawaii education class

University of Hawaii at Hilo professor Jonathan Price, and his vegetation class, came to learn about plant species, the forest composition and the restoration project in Keau’ohana this Saturday. The students conducted a brief survey to further study the effects of invasive species on the native interior of Keau’ohana site. By comparing the monotypic composition of the waiawi border to the native diversity within the site, students were able to observe the difference between a healthy forest and one that is depleted of richness and abundance.
