This chapter focuses on the distribution and species composition of conifer forests in Southern California. Conifers make up most forests and woodlands of Southern California. These coniferous forests include closed-cone conifers, four-needle pinyons, ghost pines, Coulter pines, Bigcone Douglas fir, mixed-conifer forests, subalpine forests, and pinyon-juniper woodlands. The chapter also discusses the properties of conifer fire regimes, followed by summaries of three fire-regime models, and the role of fire in mixed-conifer forest assemblages.

Keywords:   conifer forests, Southern California, closed-cone conifers, four-needle pinyons, ghost pines, Coulter pines, Bigcone Douglas fir, mixed-conifer forests, subalpine forests, pinyon-juniper woodlands
