The chaparral biome is a shrubland ecosystem that is characterized by fire disturbance every 10-15 years. Rainfall in the chaparral is limited. Plants are adapted to conditions of drought and fire; shrubs and trees have hard leaves to hold moisture and fire-dependent life cycles. Chaparral biome is mostly found in Southern California and Baja Mexico.
