Abstract: The alteration of natural successional trends within Hawaii's native flora has been affected by many agents. The introduction of exotic plants and feral animals by the early Polynesians marked the first purposeful change in species composition and succession within the Islands. The subsequent addition by European man of numerous species of exotic plants has helped to alter substantially the process of natural succession in many plant communities throughout Hawai'i. The presence of these exotic species has, in many instances, increased the potential for further alteration of these communities by fire. The intent of this study is to document the effects of fire in a mixed grass and shrub 'Ohi'a woodland, in an effort to provide information relevant to control and suppression of future fires within this ecosystem.
