Legislation/regulation

FINAL RULE: 12 HAWAIIAN PLANTS, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
SUMMARY: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) determines endangered status pursuant to the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act), for 12 species of Hawaiian plants: Adenophorus periens (pendant kihi fern), Bonamia menziesii (no common name (NCN)), Diellia erecta (NCN), Flueggea neowawraea (mehamehame), Hibiscus brackenridgei (ma`o hau hele), Mariscus pennatiformis (NCN), Neraudia sericea (ma`aloa), Plantago princeps (ale), Sesbania tomentosa (`ohai), Solanum incompletum (thorny popolo), Spermolepis hawaiiensis (NCN), and Vigna o-wahuensis (Oahu vigna). These 12 species are found on 1 or more of the following Hawaiian Islands: Laysan, Necker, Nihoa, Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe, Maui, and Hawaii. The 12 species and their habitats have been variously affected or are currently threatened by one or more of the following: habitat degradation and/or predation by wild, feral, or domestic animals (pigs, goats, deer, cattle); competition for space, light, water, and nutrients by naturalized, introduced vegetation; habitat loss from fires; human impacts from recreational activities; and insect infestations. Due to the small number of existing individuals and/or their very narrow distributions, these species and most of their populations are subject to an increased likelihood of extinction and/or reduced reproductive vigor from stochastic events. This rule implements the protection provisions provided by the Act for these plant taxa. EFFECTIVE DATE: December 12, 1994.
