|Abstract:||This proposal is written in response to Haleakala National Park Project Number HALE-N-6 (Kipahulu Pig Study). As outlined in their Project Statement the research is to provide information in the following areas: 1. Population grouping, distribution and racial types. 2. Specific points of access into Kipahulu Valley by outside populations of pigs. 3. The role of pigs in the introduction and spread of exotic plants into Kipahulu Valley. 4. The role of pigs in the direct destruction of native plants. 5. The probable long range effect on Kipahulu Valley if no control measures are taken. 6. If control measures are recommended, then a study is to be made of the cost, effectiveness and potential damage to the native habitat of: a. hunting, b. trapping, |
c. fencing, d. sterilants, e. any other feasible methods.
