Type: other

Article abstract: The purpose of this manual is to describe each of the native and naturalized vegetation types known to occur within western San Diego County and to provide the user a means to determine each type through direct observations of species composition. The intended users of this manual are biologists, vegetation ecologists, geographers, land managers, regional planners, and all others for whom applying standardized nomenclature to vegetation is useful. The classification presented herein is the result of a detailed analysis of data collected throughout the western San Diego County study area (Figure 1). Under contract to the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), Biologists from AECOM, Conservation Biology Institute, and the California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG) Vegetation Classification and Mapping Program (VegCAMP) collaborated on these analyses, the definition of the classifications, and preparation of this manual.
