Description: A classification system for use in describing vegetation has been developed for Hawaii. Physiognomic and taxonomic criteria are used for a hierarchical stratification of vegetation in which the system categories are Formation, Subformation, Series, Association, and Phase. The System applies to local resource management activities and serves as a framework for resource assessment reporting as it relates to vegetation. Although developed for Hawaii, the system can be applied to other Pacific islands.
