    Détails de cette espèce dans Maui Is.

    Statut d'envahissement: Envahissant
    Occurrence: Établi(e)

    Date d'introduction:
    Mode d'Introduction: Intentionnelle (probablement)
    Notes sur l'espèce pour cette localité:
    Cestrum nocturnum was first reported to be naturalised on East Maui (Oppenheimer & Bartlett, 2000) where it was also reported to have numerous, viable seeds (Kepler, 1995; in Oppenheimer & Bartlett, 2000). Later observations from Makawao and the Ko‘olau Forest Reserves on East Maui reported the potential for C. nocturnum to form dense thickets in riparian areas (Oppenheimer, 2007). A range expansion into West Maui was also reported, with C. nocturnum noted to be a common shrub along an intermittent stream in the Ïao Valley (Oppenheimer & Tangalin, 2006; in Oppenheimer, 2007). These reports also suggest that an aquatic form of dispersal may be likely in addition to bird seed dispersal (Oppenheimer, 2007).

    Notes sur la localité:
    Starr et al. (2005) state that Cestrum nocturnum is commonly cultivated in Hawaii for its fragrant flowers that bloom at night.
    Impacts:
    Compétition: Cestrum nocturnum appears to be more suited to capturing and using light than native Hawaiian species in greenhouse conditions (Pattison et al., 1998). This was shown to be especially so in high light conditions such as those which could be found in highly disturbed areas (Pattison et al., 1998).
    Perturbation physique: Observations from Makawao and the Ko‘olau Forest Reserves on East Maui reported the potential for Cestrum nocturnum to form dense thickets in riparian areas (Oppenheimer, 2007)
