Title: Sandalwood in the Cook Islands 
Author: Sykes, W.R.
Date: 1980-01
Publisher: University of Hawaii Press
Citation: Sykes WR. 1980. Sandalwood in the Cook Islands. Pac Sci 34(1): 77-82.
Abstract: Reports of sandalwood, Santalum sp., being present on Rarotonga
in the early part of the nineteenth century are presumably incorrect,
because no specimens from there have ever been found. However, sandalwood
does grow on Mitiaro to the northeast and is here named as a new variety of
S. insulare Bert. Within this widespread French Polynesian species the Cook
Island plant is closest to the type variety from the Society Islands.
