Abstract
This report covers the second and third phases of field work during the summers of 1976 and 1977 for the Resources Basic Inventory of the Crater District of Haleakala National Park. The first phase, covering 23 localities, was reported on as CPSU/UH Technical Report #9, "Haleakala National Park Resources Basic Inventory 1975: Narrative Report." Information is presented for 35 localities in the Crater District, including aspect, total cover, general description, substrate, a description of surrounding areas, climate, and number of specimens collected. Landmarks associated with each study area are identified, with grid references, elevation, and other information provided which will enable one to locate an area within 100 feet. In the future, therefore, it should be possible to revisit particular sites so that species presence and abundance can be compared with the present as reported here. Comparisons of this nature can be used to determine the impact of visitors or to evaluate the effects of specific resource management programs, e.g., attempts to reestablish native ecosystems. The quantitative descriptions of the vegetation in each area can also be used in vegetation community analysis programs. This inventory provides the baseline information for annotated catalogues, to be published separately, for the flowering plants, ferns, bryophytes, lichens, birds, and insects. In addition to the general inventory of the area, special attention has been paid to the identification of natural resource management problems and consideration of their scope. These analyses will be published in a separate technical report at the conclusion of the inventory.
