Distribution Maps of Selected Alien Plants in Hawaii

A product of the Hawaiian Ecosystems at Risk (HEAR) Project
University of Hawaii Department of Botany/CPSU

This is a list of distribution maps of selected alien plants in Hawaii arranged BY SPECIES; you may also browse BY ISLAND.

NOTE: Use the "Find" feature of your browser to quickly locate a particular family, genus, species, or island.

All islands on which we know* a species to occur are listed below that species.  If there is no hyperlink, that means that we don't have any specific information about where the species occurs on that island.  (This indicates a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY for you to submit new information to the HEAR project for inclusion on these maps!)

See also the new HEAR "Island Matrix" (including information about distribution & controllability of selected species by island).

IMPORTANT!  The information on this page (and on these maps) is a part of an ONGOING EFFORT; data is UPDATED as we receive better information.  The information presented here is NOT intended to represent "the be­all, end­all" for any species or island.  Rather, we hope that it will stimulate you to send us corrections/updated information based on your own field observations!

*NOTE*26 March 1997 NOTE!  The BY­ISLAND occurrences have been verified against a standard list of references to ensure quality of the data presented. Details of this process are available online in the "Island-by-island distribution" section of HEAR's Methods, Standards, and Conventions document.
