California Coastal Scrub / Chaparral Bird Conservation Plan

California Partners In Flight This plan has been developed to guide conservation policy and action on behalf of coastal scrub/chaparral habitats and wildlife. The geographic scope of this plan is the distribution of low-elevation shrublands west of the state’s major mountain axis. The plan has focused on data concerning bird species that are dependent on these habitat types, but conservation recommendations have broad applicability for all coastal scrub and chaparral habitats in California (with the exception of montane chaparral). If implemented, these recommendations would benefit many scrub- and chaparral-dependent species.
