A Manual of California Vegetation

A manual of California Vegetation, 2nd Ed. (cover)CNPS has adopted a definitive system for describing vegetation statewide. This standard vegetation classification has been accepted by state and federal agencies, and the principal unit is called “Alliance” (or series), which is a floristically defined vegetation type identified by its dominant and/or characteristic species.
