|End -||Number of species in genus that are endemic (found in Hawaii and nowhere else). See class handout for current flora statisics.|
|Ind -||Number of species in genus that are indigenous (native to Hawaii but not endemic).|
|Anc -||Number of original introductions (ancestors) believed to account for total diversity of the genus in Hawaii.|

Recent research indicates that adjustments to earlier estimates of the importance of some source areas are warranted and that a few Hawaiian groups may have their closest relatives in Africa.
|Mode -||Means of dispersal of ancestor(s) from source area to Hawaii.||A = Drifting in air
DF = Drifting in water, frequent
DR = Drifting in water, rare
BB = Externally on birds by barbs or other mechanical attachment
