New Paper Out!
Have a read of my new paper that came out in Plant Ecology earlier this year! It explores how Metrosideros polymorpha seedlings respond to different drought treatments, both in terms of their traits and whole plant performance. This is really important because climate change models predict that Hawaii will experience more severe droughts punctuated by extreme rainfall events!
You can contact me for a pdf if you can't access the paper online.
