    Biogeographic assessment designed and implemented by NOAA's Center for Coastal Monitoring and Assessment (CCMA) Biogeography Branch and the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument (PMNM) under the direction of NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries. The assessment is intended to support the research and management needs of the PMNM by providing spatially-articulated products in map and tabular formats, to support ecosystem-based management and long-term protection of the Monument's marine resources. The report is organized by introducing the geology, habitats, and oceanographic characteristics of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, followed by the biogeography of living marine resources within and adjacent to the Monument.
