Hawaiian Ecosystems at Risk project (HEAR) Noxious plants of the Hawaiian ranges
(Edward Y. Hosaka and Alan Thistle, June 1954)

The Noxious plants of the Hawaiian ranges booklet was prepared by Edward Y. Hosaka and Alan Thistle (University of Hawaii, June 1954).

It is presented here online in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of its publication. It contains an interesting historical perspective to the issue of "noxious plants" in Hawaii.
