Effective stewardship of natural resources in the national parks of the Pacific Island Network begins with baseline knowledge of the resources. To acquire this knowledge, the National Park Service collects fundamental information on twelve (12) basic inventories defined in the Natural Resources Inventory and Monitoring Guidelines (NPS-75). These inventories consist of resource information basic to park management needs.
