Abstract. Dominant shrub species of coastal sage scrub in coastal southern Cali- fornia are able to produce shoots from their base on a continual basis in the absence of fire or other major defoliation. As a result, each shrub becomes a population of mixed-aged branches (ramets) and extends its duration in the canopy beyond the age of any Cited by: Postfire regeneration of the shrub and herb vegetation on eight coastal slopes of California coastal sage scrub was studied in the first two growing seasons after fire.

Microdisturbances in old fields and forests: implications for woody seedling establishment. Coastal beach and dune habitats, coastal and interior sage scrub, chaparral, woodlands, grasslands, riparian woodlands, and wetlands all contribute unique plant assemblages to Southern California. In addition to discussing each of these areas in depth, this book also emphasizes ecological factors such as drought, seasonal temperatures, and fire /5(9).   Californian coastal sage scrub has floristically distinct subassociations with sharp boundaries in the Santa Monica Mountains. This mesoscale biogeographic pattern has been variously attributed to the timing and pattern of fire and to differences in the moisture availability on sites. An examination of the actual fire history of sites reveals that recent fire Cited by: essential to adaptive management of coastal sage scrub habitat. of coastal sage scrub habitats to develop guidelines for such activities. following areas key to the management of coastal sage scrub: plants (weedy species, especially annual species of old world origin).
