Baja California Plant Communities

Some of the major community types found in southern California and adjacent Baja California are discussed in the following paragraphs. Several of these communities are well represented at the UCI Arboretum. In other cases, we are beginning to develop collections of these plants. In all cases, we are attempting to grow together those plants that occur together naturally. Our hope is to allow visitors and students to gain an idea of the diversity of community types found in this region.
