Purpose

This study was focused on identifying sites that still retain relatively intact and highly diverse native coastal plant communities throughout seven of the main Hawaiian Islands (Kaua‘i, O‘ahu, Molokai, Lana‘i, Kaho‘olawe, Maui, and Hawai‘i) that may be further impacted by projected sea level rise. The island of Ni‘ihau was not included in the survey since there is very limited information for this island on its coastal plant community composition and structure, and very-high-resolution imagery is not available to use for assessing the status of its coastal vegetation. Within the identified threatened coastal sites we also attempted to determine if important cultural sites (e.g., Hawaiian house or wall structures, burial sites, etc.) found at there might also be threatened by the projected sea level rise. The results of this study are intended to provide a spatial foundation for identifying priority sites containing native coastal vegetation which can be used for the development of management strategies to help maintain the viability of native coastal plant communities and other important cultural resources found at these sites.
