New paper out on the HIPPNET plots! A study by Camila Medeiros and colleagues looked at the functional traits of all of the species at the Palamanui and Laupahoehoe sites. This paper examines how lowland dry forest and montane wet forest differ in their traits and how they can be used to predict growth and mortality of the trees.
