Abstract:

This study, used a hybrid ecosystem approach to test whether hybrid ecosystems can 1 maintain themselves with relatively little input 2 are capable of sequestering substantial amounts of carbon 3 sustain a broad range of native biological diversity and 4 remain open enough at ground level to allow human movement through them. Our objectives were tested in lowland wet forest at the Keaukaha Military Reservation on the Island of Hawaii. A functional trait based restoration approach was used to select the native and non-native species for the hybrid communities planted.
