About this book

Chaparral Shrubs is a field guide to 132 shrub and subshrub species found in the chaparral of southern California. Each species is described and illustrated with colour photographs, and a simple key to all species, based on vegetative features, is included to aid identification. Descriptions include details of the plant's growth form, typical habitats and elevation range where found, blooming period, fire response, wildlife values, and traditional human uses. A distribution map indicates the known occurrence of each shrub in California. The guide is fully indexed, and a glossary defines the botanical terms used. The guide will be valuable for students, resource managers, fire specialists, and anyone desiring to learn more about California's diverse native flora.
