Welina Mai — Welcome

Biology and culture are co-dependent, mutually reinforcing, and inseparably intertwined. Biological and cultural diversity face tremendous threats, and now more than ever we need innovative approaches, new thinking, and concerted efforts to provide appropriate solutions. Based at the University of Hawai‘i, the Biocultural Initiative of the Pacific is a knowledge center and network linking scholars, instructors and students who share the common goal of thinking holistically to enhance understanding of biocultural systems.
