Starr, Forest, Kim Starr, and Ken Wood. 2006. Lanai offshore islets botanical survey. Prepared for the State of Hawaii Division of Forestry and Wildlife's Department of Land and Natural Resources and the Offshore Islet Restoration Committee.
The offshore islets of Lanai are comprised of several near shore sea stacks on the western and southern coasts. The Lanai islets, with the exception of Kapukaloa Rock and Kiei islet, are seabird sanctuaries, managed by the State Department of Land and Natural Resources, Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DLNR / DOFAW). The Lanai islets, though fairly close to the main island of Lanai, have limited access due to rough seas and sheer cliffs. For each islet a brief description is given with notes on vegetation, wildlife, threats, and restoration opportunities. A species checklist provides information on presence and abundance for plants observed. An annotated list of the vascular plant species for each islet details the current distribution observed during this survey, historical collections and observations, and recommendations for restoration. Also included for each islet are location maps, and photos showing general landscape and vegetation types.
