Yelenik, S.G. and Rose, E.T., 2022, Keamuku Maneuver Area vegetation, soil, and foliar data 2013-2016: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This data release includes data and metadata on 155 vegetation plots that were random stratified across different substrate ages and geological features at Keamuku Maneuver Area (KMA) on Hawaii Island in order to capture vegetation patterns across the landscape in relation to geology and climate. This data set also includes coordinates for the plots and geological data. This data was also used to determine dominant vegetation types across KMA.

In this study we test how disturbance affects the dominant vegetation types in Keamuku Maneuver Area (KMA) on Hawaii Island. We look at whether similar plant communities return, or new ones, and how quickly this occurs. This will help land managers predict outcomes of disturbance on this landscape, and helps to better understand invasion dynamics among non-native, invasive species that are common in Hawaii.
