England|Ecology has mapped vegetation in significant detail for projects across California. Vegetation maps serve as an important baseline for understanding the habitats present on a site and, therefore, the species that are likely to occur. They are recommended and often required for any significant biological impact analysis. England|Ecology has field-mapped and created GIS layers for dozens of projects throughout the state of California using a variety of standardized classification systems, including our favorite in the “old school” Preliminary Descriptions of the Terrestrial Natural Communities of California by Holland (1986) and the now commonly-required A Manual of California Vegetation, Second Edition by Sawyer et al. (2009).
