DescriptionThis report summarizes an inventory of chaparral-dominated lands in southern California conducted during the mid-1990s and provides a review of contemporary literature on the ecological dynamics of chaparral vegetation with emphases on stand development, species composition, and the role of fire. Detailed tables provide estimates of chaparral area by owner, type, size, and cover, and, for lands outside national forests, area by fire-hazard class and 10-year change in chaparral area.
