Two samples were collected from a possible berm or edge of a berm between fishponds located on a previous floodplain at Fort DeRussy. Cultivation of wetland taro is a possibility prior to construction of the fishponds. Pollen analysis was undertaken to search for evidence that taro was grown in this area.

Sediment samples collected during a Phase II mitigation of the Honolulu High-Capacity Transit Corridor Project on O’ahu Island, Hawai’i were examined for pollen. The samples were collected from buried deposits thought to represent traditional Hawaiian wetland taro agriculture (lo’i) (Matt McDermott, personal communication, March 2, 2011). Pollen analysis was used to search for evidence of taro agriculture.

Sites 26847, 26852, and 13384 are located on the lower slopes of the volcanic peak of Hualālai in Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i. Ten fill samples from an open agricultural area, an agricultural wall, and a habitation/activity enclosure within these sites were submitted for pollen and phytolith analysis. The goal of the analysis is to identify plant resources utilized by the occupants of this site.

Pollen samples were examined from Core 7, which was extracted from the base of the excavations at backhoe Trench 1, in the central portion of Mokuhinia Pond. Sediments recovered from this core between the ground water table at approximately 110 cm below the present ground surface, and 175 cm below the surface, were examined for pollen. Radiocarbon ages that may be associated with these sediments range from 290 +60 BP (AD 1459-1681) through 3020 +60 BP(BC 1406-1111). Pollen analysis of the...

Site 50-10-30-10222, located within the U.S. Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA), is situated in the saddle region between Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, and Hual̀ālai. Water-worn stones recovered at this site are interpreted to represent stones that were heated, then placed in bird abdominal cavities to cook the flesh from the inside. Two elongated water-worn basalt pebbles were submitted for protein residue analysis to determine if there is protein evidence of this practice.
