The purpose of this study was to determine the ecological factors existing within the chaparral community. The present status of the vegetation in a one-acre exclosure was analyzed and recorded so that subsequent improvement or eterioration might be noted. A brief history of the area, the weather, and the geology are presented. Many other aspects of the problems enumerated in the introduction need to be studied. This study provides a foundation for a more detailed study of the vegetation which may be undertaken at a future date.
