Hawaiian Islands Ceratocystis luhuohia modeled habitat suitability

Metadata Updated: October 26, 2023

Hawaiʹi’s most widespread native tree, ʹōhiʹa lehua (Metrosideros polymorpha), has been dying across large areas of Hawaiʹi Island mainly due to two fungal pathogens (Ceratocystis lukuohia and Ceratocystis huliohia) that cause a disease collectively known as Rapid ʹŌhiʹa Death (ROD). Here we examine patterns of positive detections of C. lukuohia as it has been linked to the larger mortality events across Hawaiʹi Island. Our analysis compares the environmental range of C. lukuohia and its spread over time through the known climatic range and distribution of ʹōhiʹa. This data set is a georeferenced raster file, containing the projected suitability for C.lukuohia across the main Hawaiian Islands using climatic variables that varied consistently with C. lukuohia prevalence (Mean annual precipication and minimum temperature of coldest month) at 500 meter resolution. This C. lukuohia habitat suitability was generated using maxent using methods described in Fortini et. al 2019 (Forest Ecology and Management). Full citation is listed in the larger work section of this XML file.
