How to use this site. The initial page is a current list of scientific names, of plants occurring within the park -- each name linked to a species by family. (Additional lists are included by common names or a list by Samoan names.) If illustrations are available, thumbnail pictures on the family list pages link to enlarged photos.
Or, you can browse pages of illustrations arranged by family. Holding your curser on the image will pop up the plant name. (There, clicking on any image jumps to the enlarged photo).

This page was developed from the National Park Service Inventory and Monitoring website--an intranet site as yet not generally available to the public. The data are from a report on marine invertebrates of Kalapapa National Historical Park dated 4 September 2008.
The NPS Inventorying and Monitoring site is a work in progress at this time. It is expected to be on line to the public in a couple more years.
