The vegetation is now dense, predominantly chamise

Kramer, a spokesperson for the Pacific Northwest Region of the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest, said in a news release Tuesday that those participating in outdoor activities should be mindful of the dry surroundings.
The reserve is a mosaic of chamise
chaparral, oak woodland, and grasslands.
Gray foxes preferred northern mixed chaparral over other habitats, followed by coastal sage scrub, coast live oak, then chamise
chaparral; valley oak and grassland were underused (Table 2; Wilk's [lambda] = 0.208, [[chi].sup.2.sub.[5,11]] = 23.54, P < 0.001).
(6) The vegetation at Torrey Pines has been called degraded chaparral, but most experts classify it as coastal sage scrub, even though chaparral-type plants, such as chamise

Along Bear Creek, the out-and-back Bear Gulch Loop (a mile one way) is a favorite--a moderate trek with lots of colorful spring blooms, including Indian paintbrush, shooting stars, and sweet-scented chamise
. Here, finally, find a shady spot by the creek and break out that picnic.
When the researchers exposed seeds in a test: chamber to nitrogen dioxide for as little as 1 minute, the seeds sprouted at high rates that matched those of seeds exposed to actual smoke from sprigs of the common chaparral shrub called chamise
. Without smoke or nitrogen dioxide exposure, the seeds didn't sprout at all.
They ran into a patch of chamise
bush, allowing me to sprint up to a spot that offered a good view as they reappeared on the other side.
