"Hawaiian Watershed Response"

This is a closed meeting for a funded group of visiting scholars.

This project proposes to combine novel predictive species distribution models (SDMs) and species interaction distribution models (SIDMs) with ecosystem service valuation modeling (ES) to address these critical socio-environmental systems (SESs) research questions:

  1. How do bioclimatic variables, dispersal, and species interactions affect species abundance?
  2. How might species abundances, dispersal, and species interactions respond to changes in future climates?
  3. How do changes in forest structure affect the hydrology of watersheds?
  4. How do changes in forest structure affect ecosystem services of watersheds, such as cultural resources, water supply, sedimentation, or coral reef health? What are the effects to ecosystem service flow to beneficiaries?
  5. How do changes in climate affect the hydrology of watersheds?
  6. How do changes in climate affect ecosystem services of watersheds, such as cultural resources, water supply, sedimentation, or coral reef health? What are the effects to ecosystem service flow to beneficiaries?
