The threat of wildfire is a large concern in the dryland, alpine shrubland ecosystems of Hawai ‘i. This unique ecosystem is dominated by māmane (Sophora chrysophylla), a dry forest leguminous tree species that is the exclusive food source for the Palila (Loxioides bailleui), an endemic and federally endangered Hawaiian bird. Curiously, in this ecosystem, it is common to see many intact māmane seeds on the ground, but very few māmane seedlings. This webinar will discuss research focused on phosphorus (P) fertilization and soil bacterial that aids in nitrogen fixation to test potential restoration techniques in burned and unburned areas where wildfire is common. This research can help increase the success of current habitat management and restoration efforts for DoD managed lands.
