About this book

Chaparral – the shrub-dominated landscape found in-between the coast and the mountains – is California's most extensive ecosystem and can be found in every single county in the state.

The Chaparral Shrublands of Southern California – produced with the assistance of the San Diego Audubon Society and other partners – highlights over 140 familiar species of trees and wildflowers, cacti, insects, reptiles and amphibians, birds, mammals (and their tracks). Proceeds from the sale of The Chaparral Shrublands of Southern California go in part to further the work of the sponsoring partner. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, pocket-sized folding guide is an excellent source of portable information and ideal for field use by visitors and residents alike.
