Plant Communities, Benthic Marine Communities, Marine Fish, Streams, Water Quality, and Climate


Description

While primarily a WWII historical park, the seven units of War in the Pacific National Historical Park (Guam) contain vibrant stream life, tropical limestone forest, and coral reefs. An astounding number of organisms make their homes on these reefs. In fact, more species of corals, fish, and invertebrates live on these reefs than on those of any other Pacific island national park.

The biodiversity throughout this park is rarely matched anywhere in the world.

Park Species List

Select a Species Category (optional):

What's the difference?

A Checklist contains only those species that are designated as "present" or "probably present" in the park.

The Full List with Details includes all the Checklist species plus species that are unconfirmed, historically detected, or incorrectly reported in the park. The Full List also contains species that are "in review" because their status in the park hasn't been fully determined. Additional details about the status of each species is included in the Full List.

The Checklist will almost always contain fewer species than the Full List.
