Abstract: The intertidal, coral, and sandy-bottom areas near the shoreline of Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site were surveyed for macroscopic benthic algae. There were only 13 species present, of which only 2 were abundant, Biddulphia pulchella and Valonia aegagrophila. Two species which are sometimes indicators of polluted water, Ulva fasciata and Enteromorpha sp., were present along the Kawaihae revetment. The flora is depauperate: the low species diversity and biomass is the result of extensive sedimentation from runoff and the building of the Kawaihae revetment. Since the area is no longer flushed out by the tides or currents, the present status of the benthic algae will probably remain the same.
