This book is the result of a commitment made to Professor Heinrich Walter (University of Stuttgart-Hohenheim, Germany) in 1978 by Dr. F. Ray Fosberg and myself. Heinrich Walter initiated a book series entitled Vegetationsmono­ graphien der einzelnen Grossriiume (Vegetation Monographs of the Major World Regions). Upon H. Walter's death in 1989, Professor Siegmar-W. Breckle (Uni­ versity of Bielefeld) continued as editor of this monograph series. Professor Wal­ ter's concept included nine world regions: Vol. I, North and Central America; Vol. II, South America; Vol. III, Africa; Vol. IV, Australia; Vol. V, Tropical Asia; Vol. VI, East Asia; Vol. VII, Eastern Europe with North and Central Asia; Vol. VIII, Europe exclusive of Eastern Europe; and Vol. IX, the Pacific Islands. Vols. I, II, III, IV, and VII have since been published by Fischer Verlag, Stuttgart. Vol. VIII will be published concurrently as the last volume (in German) through Fischer Verlag. Vol. IX, this volume, is the second book in English (after Vol. IV) and the first to be published by Springer-Verlag. Vol. VI is currently in prepa­ ration, and Vol. V is still in the planning stage. In 1979 Dr. Fosberg and I began to make tentative outlines for this book. His Pacific island work began in 1935, when he received his M.Sc. degree in botany from the University of Hawaii, based on work on the genus Gouldia (Rubiaceae ).
