Surviving Paradise: A Hawaiian Tale.
Perspectives: Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity at Ohio University, v6 n1 p10-17 Spr-Sum 2002
An Ohio University program that introduces botany students to field work sent a team to study Hawaiian species of violets and algae, endangered by invasive, imported plants. The situation of the native species relates to larger scientific and ecological issues because algae is the basis of the aquatic food chain, and violets adapt in unique ways to new environments. (TD)
