Description: Ecological descriptions of 98 research natural areas (of various statuses) in the Pacific Southwest Region of the USDA Forest Service are summarized in this report. These descriptions, basically based on ecological surveys conducted from 1975 through 2000, provide important but largely unknown information on the ecology of California. For each area, descriptions of location, target elements, distinctive features, physical characteristics, plant communities, plant diversity, and conflicting impacts are provided. Comparisons are made between similar vegetation types at different sites. Summaries of all research natural areas' target elements, plant communities, and ecological units can be found in tables and appendices. Maps and photographs are included.

Key Words: California vegetation, ecological survey, research natural areas
