Central California Valley Ecoregion

Flat, intensively farmed plains having long, hot dry summers and cool wet winters distinguish the Central California Valley from its neighboring ecoregions that are either hilly or mountainous, forest or shrub covered, and generally nonagricultural. Nearly half of the region is in cropland, about three fourths of which is irrigated. Environmental concerns in the region include salinity due to evaporation of irrigation water, groundwater contamination from heavy use of agricultural chemicals, wildlife habitat loss, and urban sprawl.

Central California Valley Plant Communities

Alkali Sink

Poorly drained flats and playas in which high rates of evaporation produce high salt concentrations in the soil. Characterized by low scattered halophytes, usually featuring the genus Atriplex.

Foothill Woodland

Foothills and valley borders, 400 to 3000 feet. Trees 15 to 70 feet tall, in dense or open woodland, with scattered brush and grassland between the trees, which include Pinus sabiniana, several species of oak, California bay laurel, and California buckeye.

Freshwater Marsh

Marshes of interior valleys, river-bottom lagoons, and along the coast behind salty or brackish areas, from sea level to about 500 feet.

Valley Grassland

Originally with various bunchgrasses such as Nasella pulchra, now largely dominated by invasive exotic annual species. Open treeless grassland, with vernal pools scattered locally.
