Abstract: A vegetation map of the Crater District of Haleakala National
Park was produced at a scale of I : 24,000, which can be used as an overlay of the
U.S. Geological Survey I : 24,000 topographic quadrangle maps. Fifty-three
structural-floristic communities, which were grouped into four structural vegetation
types, were mapped. Areas were calculated for each community using an
electronic planimeter. Topographic vegetation profiles were constructed that
show changes in vegetation types in relation to climatic gradients. Correlations
were observed between certain substrates and community types. Phytosociological
analysis of releve data by the synthesis table technique and the dendrograph
technique resulted in ecologically meaningful groupings of the sample stands.
