successful transfer of dhp-degrading bacteria from hawaiian goats to australian ruminants to overcome the toxicity of leucaena.cattle and goats in australia lack the ability to totally degrade 3-hydroxy-4(1h)-pyridone, also known as 3,4-dihydroxy pyridine (3,4 dhp), the ruminal metabolite of mimosine, a toxic aminoacid present in the leguminous shrub leucaena leucocephala. ruminants in hawaii have this capacity due to the presence of micro-organisms able to rapidly degrade the dhp. a mixed bacterial population capable of rapidly degrading dhp in vitro was isolated from a goat on the island of maui. cultures were grown a ...19863790013
Remote analysis of biological invasion and the impact of enemy release.Escape from natural enemies is a widely held generalization for the success of exotic plants. We conducted a large-scale experiment in Hawaii (USA) to quantify impacts of ungulate removal on plant growth and performance, and to test whether elimination of an exotic generalist herbivore facilitated exotic success. Assessment of impacted and control sites before and after ungulate exclusion using airborne imaging spectroscopy and LiDAR, time series satellite observations, and ground-based field st ...201121939046

the islands are different: human perceptions of game species in hawaii.hawaii's game animals are all non-native species, which provokes human-wildlife conflict among stakeholders. the management of human-wildlife conflict in hawaii is further complicated by the discrete nature of island communities. our goal was to understand the desires and perceived values or impacts of game held by residents of hawaii regarding six game species [pigs (sus scrofa), goats (capra hircus), mouflon (ovis musimon), axis deer (axis axis), turkeys (melagris gallopavo), and doves (geopel ...201425129387
