The research project addressed in this data curation profile is the taxonomic revision of Astelia (including 46 taxa). The current work is an expansion of previous work in which she recognized three species and four proposed varieties of Astelia in Hawaii. The data management needs revolve around making the data available following publication. The researcher believes that the morphological data would be useful to plant systematics and conservation biologists and thus making it accessible to them would be important.
