Abstract

Chromosome data are reported for 42 formally recognized angiosperm taxa and one natural hybrid, comprising 21 genera and 17 families occurring in the Hawaiian Islands, Fiji (Viti Levu) and Western Samoa (Upolu, Savaii). Included are first chromosome counts for 20 species. The relevance of the chromosome numbers to systematics and speciation of the investigated native taxa and the significance of counts obtained for non-native taxa are discussed.
