The keys are supported with instructions and an extensive glossary. Species discussion includes a brief description and generalized distribution of each species. When known, the fire response mechanism, wildlife value, and cultural value are given. A line drawing or photograph of each species is included. All genera that include chaparral shrub and subshrub species recognized by A Flora of Southern California by Philip A. Munz are listed in an appendix.
