Guam & Saipan – Welcome to Your Plants

May 29, 2014

So you don’t know much about the trees, grasses, shrubs, and vines in War in the Pacific National Historical Park or American Memorial Park? No problem. We’ve got you “covered” (if you got that joke… read on, you botanist). Full vegetation map reports were just completed for the two parks. These reports really break down the forests, mangroves, and fields in a unique way that allows us to look at how and where communities of plants occur.

The vegetation mapping inventory is a nationwide effort led by the National Park Service Inventory & Monitoring Program to both document and build a basic understanding of the plant community composition in many U.S. national parks. For similar reports for other Pacific islands national parks visit: http://science.nature.nps.gov/im/units/pacn/publications.cfm, then click on the “Biological Inventory Reports” tab, then on “Plants”.
