The Hawai’i Permanent Plot Network

The Hawai’i Permanent Plot Network (HIPPNET) was initiated in 2007 by faculty and research ecologists at the University of Hawaii, USDA Forest Service, and UCLA to investigate forest dynamics across the Island of Hawai’i.

The long-term goal is to establish large-scale, permanent plots in native-dominated forest across elevation and precipitation gradients throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Long-term forest dynamics plots have been established worldwide; these plots establish Hawai’i as part of the The Center for Tropical Forest Science and Forest Global Earth Observatories (CTFS-ForestGEO) network.
