The 2nd Southern California Chaparral Symposium: Understanding the Ecological Value of Chaparral Landscapes: Ecosystem Services, Human Management, and Future trends


  • 701 N Santa Anita Ave Arcadia, CA, 91006 United States

Southern California is among the most biodiverse regions of the United States, and also home to millions of people living in close proximity to natural areas. Chaparral vegetation dominates the southern California landscape, but there is little public appreciation of the ecological value of chaparral, of the ecosystem services that chaparral landscapes provide, or current and projected trends in the sustainability of this precious and unique natural resource.

This event has passed but check below for links of the recorded presentation and the PDF's of the powerpoint slides where available.
