Abstract: The botany of four small, relatively undisturbed tuff cone islands
off the east coast of Upolu, Western Samoa, is examined. During a series of visits
to the islands, the vegetation was studied in nine sample plots, and a checklist of
the 260 species comprising the flora was compiled. Six types of native vegetation
are recognized, one of which (Diospyros coastal forest) appears to be unique to
tuff cone islands. Casual observations were made on the avifauna and turtle
species, and the ecological significance of the islands is discussed.
