Kapunawai hosts Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death (ROD) Display

February 13, 2019 by aapaikai | 0 comments

Leeward library is thrilled to be hosting a new exhibit on Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death (ROD) in Kapunawai for the Spring 2019 semester.  ROD was detected in 2014 within forests located on Hawaiʻi island. Since then, the fungal disease has rapidly spread, killing hundreds of thousands of trees and drastically impacting our native forests.  In May 2018, ROD was discovered on Kauaʻi, making it the second island in the archipelago to be plagued with the disease. (College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources

This exhibit was developed by University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Science and Technology Department librarians and was on display at Hamilton Library in 2018.  The exhibit includes some components that are on loan from Lyon Arboretum as well as library resources.

In addition to the exhibit, the library will host Marian Chau, the Seed Conservation Lab Manager at the Lyon Arboretum, and Ambyr Mokiao-Lee, the Statewide Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death Outreach Coordinator, for a ʻŌhiʻa Seed Conservation Workshop and Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death informational presentation.  Please join us on March 29, 2019 from 8am-11am to learn more about conserving our beloved ʻŌhiʻa!
