Zoopedia Entry

The scrub biome, also known as a chaparral, is type of shrub-land community that is dominated by small-leaved evergreen vegetation.
Such habitats are characteristic of the Mediterranean type of climate with warm, wet winters and long, dry summers. The name is applied to the shrub lands of California and Baja California that are dominated by scrub oak and by the dense shrubs chamiso and manzanita.
Scrub is fire dependent. Fire wipes out decadent growth, disposes of accumulated litter, recycles nutrients, and stimulates new, vigorous growth from seeds and sprouts.
