Functional Trait Analysis

This project is a part of Theme 4 and is focused on functional trait analysis for land use optimization.

The objectives of this project are to characterize how plant functional traits vary with environmental conditions in a spatially explicit manner across Hawaiian landscapes and incorporate this knowledge into modes to predict plant function and performance across specific environments under climate change.
