Zoe Hastings and Mahealani Botelho: Agroforestry restoration.

Agroforestry, a traditional land-use system that was once widespread in Hawai‘i, can simultaneously conserve biodiversity, sequester carbon, and produce culturally and economically valuable products. While interest in restoration of agroforests is growing, designing systems remains challenging. We tested design process and established a long-term restoration experiment at Kākoʻo ʻŌiwi in Heʻeia. We will discuss some of the opportunities and challenges involved in this approach.

Part of the Brown Bag Lunch series. Open to all, 11 am – noon at our Visitors Center. Come hear about research by current and recent University of Hawai’i botany students! Bring your brown bag lunch and your hungry brain.
