Abstract: A set of vegetation maps describing the upland plant communities on four of the major Hawaiian Islands was prepared as part of a survey conducted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1976 - 1981 to determine the current status of native forest birds and their associated habitats. During this project, 68 map sheets were produced at the scale of 1:24,000, overlaying U.S. Geological Survey topographic quad maps for selected portions of the islands of Hawai'i, Lana'i, Maui, and Moloka'i. Map units were differentiated on the basis of tree canopy cover, tree height, and dominant species composition of the tree and understory vegetation layers. A hierarchical classification system was developed that allows for presentation and discussion of the vegetation units at three levels of detail. Copies of the 1:24,000-scale map sheets for all areas mapped during this project are currently available for distribution on request. Efforts are now being directed toward the production of an additional set of map sheets displaying the major vegetation units on the islands of Hawai'i and Maui at the scale of 1:100,000.
Description: Reports were scanned in black and white at a resolution of 600 dots per inch and were converted to text using Adobe Paper Capture Plug-in.
