Abstract: This study examined the recovery of vegetation in non-littoral low elevation native scrub and forest along the east Kalapana Extension, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, island of Hawaii, following emigration of human settlers and the eradication of feral animals, especially goats (Capra hircus). Research methods included quantification of plant species cover in releves, population and stand structural analysis using belt transects, and examination of aerial photographs from 1954, 1965, and 1977. Structural analysis was used to describe the relationship between native and introduced woody plant populations, and their status under differing canopy cover and on a variety of substrates. Native woody species were the overall dominants.
