Acta Botanica Malacitana 26 264-276. [English abstract] We have included also some unpublished recent data within this list. The species have been arranged first by their invasive character (from higher to lower). Within the most aggressive, species have been presented by their morphology (herbaceous, woody, and so on). Within species are alphabetically listed. Consideration of `Invasiveness' follows the recent proposal by Richardson, D., Pysek, P., Rejmanek, M., Barbour, M.G., Panetta, F.D. & West, C.J. 2000.

DISCLAIMER: Be it known to all who use this web resource, that this is NOT intended to represent a complete, definitive, or authoritative checklist of the flora and fauna of the Hawaiian Islands. This is a Beta-Test site that makes available online a copy of the taxonomic database currently used by the Bishop Museum Botany collection for its collections databases. Some groups in this list have been thoroughly scrutinized and do, in fact, represent an essentially complete checklist for the Hawaiian Islands. Other groups, however, are NOT complete, and only represent an unverified listing of what happens to be in the Bishop Museum specimen collection database. (naturalised)
