Forest and Kim Starr are generous to let us use images of theirs for this web site. Theirs is an outstanding source of superb high-resolution Hawaiian plant images (by Forest and Kim Starr) at site: http://www.hear.org/starr/images/?o=plants

This website was developed from the National Park Service Inventory and Monitoring website -- now publically available for searches at https://irma.nps.gov/App/Species/Search. The data are from a report on plants of Haleakala National Park dated November 20, 2009.

This page is a work in progress. More illustrations will be added. Eventually it will be replaced by the National Park Service's Inventory and Monitoring website with live links to bibliographic sources for the records, and in some cases species distribution maps.
