In turn, this threatens the fragile tapestry of life on the islands, its supply of fresh water, its soil and its economic future. So they multiplied and devoured forests, eating native plants and rooting up soil. More non-native species came, destroying habitat, killing off vulnerable native species and spreading across the islands. On the Big Island of Hawaii, their numbers fell to 44 on Mauna Kea and fewer than 1,000 on Mauna Loa before the Hawaiian Silversword Foundation and others began to take action a few years ago.

The full color, 64 page volume is co-authored by UHH Geography and Environmental Studies professor James Juvik along with recent UHH Geography graduates John Delay and Kealoha Kinney.

The book includes chapters on the environmental factors controlling ecosystem distribution, current conservation efforts, endangered species laws and policies, and a field guide to selected endangered plant species, with ethno-botanical uses. Many photos and maps accompany the text. Readers will find information on access to public hiking areas in the various districts of the Big Island where native ecosystems can be visited.
