Comments:This series definition follows Gordon & White (1994). Chamise occurs in many chaparral, coastal scrub, and tree series. If chamise has > 60% cover, the stand is a member of the Chamise series. If chamise cover is 30-60% and Eastwood manzanita cover 30- 0%, then the stand is a member of this series [see Chamise series, Chamise-woollyleaf ceanothus series, Chamise-hoaryleaf ceanothus series, Chamise - mission-manzanita - woollyleaf ceanothus series]. Keeler-Wolf (1990e) qualitatively describes Chamise-Eastwood manzanita stands at Millard Canyon RNA in R verside Co. i. m-TraR; at Cahuilla Mountain RNA in Riverside Co., at Organ Valley RNA in San Diego Co. m-PenR.
Plot based descriptions:Parker (1990) defines an association at Mount Tamalpais in Marin Co. o-NorCo; Gordon & White (1994) seven associations in SoCo, m-TraR, White (1994a) an association at Cleghorn Canyon candidate RNA in San Bernardino Co. i. m-TraR; Keeler-Wolf (1990a) de cribes stands at King Creek RNA in San Diego Co. o-PenR.
