Report to the Government of the Cook Islands on Invasive Plant species of environmental concern

The Government of the Cook Islands requested assistance from the US Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Institute of Pacific Islands Forestry, to conduct a survey of invasive
plant species of environmental concern, similar to surveys previously conducted in Micronesia, American Samoa, Nine, Samoa and Tonga. The survey was carried out from 11 March through
1 April 2002. The islands of Rarotonga, Aitutaki, 'Atiu, Mangaia, Ma'uke and Miti'aro were surveyed. Species reported by the Cook Islands Natural Heritage Project were used for the other islands (Manuae, Manihiki, Nassau, Palmerston, Penrhyn, Pukapuka, Rakahanga, Suwarrow and Takutea) as well as for some of the uncommon cultivated species on the surveyed islands.
