Abstract: The natural vegetation of the volcanic region of Savai'i, Western
Samoa, as surveyed on an expedition in 1975, is described. The natural vegetation
of the highlands consists of cloud forest and smaller amounts of lavaflow
scrub, scrub and herbaceous vegetation of cinder and ash deposits, and
montane meadows. All but the latter were sampled for species composition
and relative dominance of species. An annotated checklist of all flowering
plant species collected or recorded on the expedition is included.
