Comments:This series is often considered part of the coastal scrub, which is better considered a collection of series. Axelrod (1978) referred to it, at least in part, as Franciscan scrub. His description is more broadly based and includes stands dominated by coyote brush or yellow bush lupine [see Coyote brush series, Yellow bush lupine series]. Stands of this series are many times mix with other series at a fine scale, especially on coastal headlands [see Hooker willow series, Pacific reedgrass series, Red alder series, Sitka spruce series, Tufted hairgrass series].
Plot based descriptions:Stuart et al. (1986) defines a Salal-coyote brush-blue blossom association at Stage-coach Hill Azalea Preserve in Humboldt Co., Baker (1972) describes a stand at Ingelnook fen as a Fen carr, NDDB has data for a bearberry-dominated stand at Point Arena in Mendocino Co., and a poison-oak - salal-dominated stand at Table Bluff, Eel River Wildlife Are in Humboldt Co. o-NorCo.
