Explore the real-time data on Caly and other native Hawaiian species. Understanding how their growth is influenced by environmental variability and change helps us conserve these species.

How does Caly’s recent growth compare to other species?

The interactive graph below shows the growth of Caly’s stem in the past few days (blue), measured by an automated stem dendrometer, compared to the growth of other species (red). Pick a species to compare Caly to using the drop-down menu.

How does Caly’s long-term growth compare to other species?

The interactive graph below shows the long-term growth of Caly’s stem (blue), measured by an automated stem dendrometer, compared to the growth of other species (red). Pick a species to compare Caly to using the drop-down menu.

*Note: The offsets near the end of the record are caused by a data collection error, and will be fixed soon.

How does Caly’s environment affect her growth?

The interactive graph below shows the growth of Caly’s stem in the past few days (blue), measured by an automated stem dendrometer, with simultaneously collected environmental data (red). Pick an environmental variable to examine using the drop-down menu.

How does Caly grow in the long-term?

The interactive graph below shows the long-term growth of Caly’s stem (blue), measured by an automated stem dendrometer, with simultaneously collected environmental data (red). Pick an environmental variable to examine using the drop-down menu. Use the slider below the graph to look at a close-up of the data during a particular time period.
