|Abstract:||This inventory of the botanical resources at |
American Memorial Park comprised a general
survey of the plants present, the preparation of a vegetation map, and the establishment of four permanent transects in the wetland. One hundred and twenty eight vascular plants including 13 ferns and fern allies were located. None are endangered
nor are there any noxious species present. The vegetation types within the natural area include mangrove swamps, marshes, strand, coastal scrub and weedy scrub. Twelve plant communities are identified and mapped. Management recommendations include garbage control, controlling vehicle access to the shoreline and programs to introduce or enhance the growth of kamani (Calophyllum inophyllum), gago (Casuarina equisetifolia), and temple grass (Zoysia matrella).
