Haiti, the tiny island nation of 1.3 million people, is home to over 200 species of flowers, including Hawaiian jack, haiti grass, Hawaiian grass, and Hawaii flower.
But with the climate changing, and with the population plummeting, the island’s population could decline by another 30 percent by 2060, according to a new study.
The researchers, from Hawaii’s National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, conducted a study to determine the extent to which the islands environment could impact the future viability of its species.
“The Hawaiian Jack is not growing like we had hoped it would,” said study lead author Jennifer Hahn, an environmental scientist at the National Institute for Environmental Health Services (NIEHS).
“The species may be in trouble.
The grasslands are not growing as expected, and we have very little rainforest to feed the plant and it needs moisture.
There is no soil to feed and we don’t have a water source.”
Hahn said the study found that by 2040, Hawaiian jack’s populations would decline by 50 percent.
“We are trying to determine if this population decline is going to continue in the near future,” she said.
The research found that haiti’s biodiversity has been “depleted” by climate change and that, in 2060 and beyond, the islands population could plummet by 60 percent.
Hahn’s study is a collaboration between NIEHS and the National Park Service, which also helped fund the research.
In addition to the Hawaii National Laboratory, the study was funded by the National Science Foundation, and the NIEH received funding from the National Natural Science Foundation.
In the study, researchers mapped the extent of species and ecosystems on the islands, including a 3-kilometer long network of rivers that ran through the Hawaiian Islands.
Researchers then compared the species that lived in each ecosystem and the species living on the other islands.
The study found a trend for decreasing biodiversity on the Hawaiian islands, with the islands’ grasslands decreasing by 90 percent and the native trees and shrubs decreasing by 70 percent.
The islands’ vegetation shrank by over 100 percent.
The paper’s co-authors were Emily D. Hahn of the Niehs Hawaiian Islands Division of Research, and Michael C. Puhlman of the National Institutes of Health’s Division of Environmental and Global Change.
The authors said that the research is a “very important contribution” to understanding how species will fare under climate change.
“Hāiti’s population decline and decline of habitat are the direct result of changes in the climate, the effects of which will have far-reaching consequences for the islands ecosystem,” said Puhlenman.
“These effects are already being felt in some of the native species, including the Hawaiʻi jack.”
While the study looked at how climate change affects the environment, it did not look at the effects the species may have on the environment on their own.
Hohn said the researchers were interested in what would happen to the ecosystem if the climate were to change.
Hanna said she hopes that the study will encourage scientists to take a more hands-on approach to the islands ecology.
“This is not just about just a few individuals.
This is the way it’s going to be with the whole population,” Hahn said.”
It’s going have a huge impact on how the species survive and flourish, because this is an important part of the Hawaiian ecosystem.”
