... All of the native plants and animals in Hawaii must be descended from organisms that made their way to the initially barren islands through the air or across the water from the surrounding continents and from distant islands. In those cases where the initial colonists survived and produced descendants, the conditions existing in the Hawaiian islands resulted in the evolution of new species with traits found nowhere else in the world.
