Sample text

Perhaps in part because European settlers saw Hawai‘i as an empty place waiting to be filled, its native biota is outnumbered by attempted introductions to a degree not often seen in continental ecosystems. Finally, existing invaders have begun to create opportunities for new invasion that have little to do with the inherent vulnerability to invasion of the original native ecosystem. For example, the spread of feral pigs into native forest has been driven at least in part by the range expansion of strawberry guava and other nonnative food sources such as introduced earthworms.

In fact, Bob said, chances are good that rooting and compaction by large numbers of pigs could have made the wet soil on flat-topped ridges anoxic (greatly deficient in oxygen), killing tree roots and inhibiting the establishment of seedlings. While large feral mammals were considered vermin and pig control was a part of forest reserve management programs at the time, early foresters did not have the resources to eliminate pigs from the vast areas of forest that they had invaded. Pigs pushed the ‘ohi‘a into a steep decline, and the loss of native forest became a self-fulfilling prophecy as nonnative trees were brought in.

Although work is in the early stages and no concrete evidence yet exists, it is conceivable that the loss of some key pollinator of a major native tree species could have cascading effects throughout the forest ecosystem. Perhaps most worrisome is that the ecosystemwide effects of the loss of this kind of key species would not be felt until long after it was too late to do anything about it. ” Where the point of such catastrophic change falls will vary with circumstances, but there is always a point beyond which recovery is not possible.
