Description: The chaparral restoration workshop held in Arcadia, CA, in 2013 brought together experts, managers and others to discuss alternatives that more effectively protect, manage and even revegetate diminishing shrublands. This publication is a compilation of some of the workshop and oral presentations that update our current knowledge of shrubland ecology and management with respect to its loss and recovery. Shrubland species have evolved strategies that allow them to endure Mediterranean climate extremes. Combinations of often complex factors allow these plants to survive unpredictable and harsh conditions. Determining which elements and conditions are critical for shrubland persistence can provide a framework for re-establishment and management of this resource. Bringing together researchers, managers and advocates who are working on restoring and sustaining chaparral and other shrublands has stimulated exchanges that may lead to improved methods for conserving shrub dominate communities.
