The chaparral is a shrub association dominated by buckbrush and white-leaf manzanita. Patches of chaparral occur as the dominant vegetation, or as an understory beneath the savanna or woodland. Plants found in this habitat must be able to live in hot, dry conditions on shallow soils. You will see mostly bushes or shrubs with woody, round, waxy leaves that prevent loss of water. This area supports large bird populations by providing good food sources and many great places to live.
