The sagebrush steppe is generally comprised of treeless, shrub-dominated communities along the eastern and northeastern boundary of California. This chapter discusses the characteristics, climate, and topography of the sagebrush steppe, focusing on the potential plant communities that comprise the natural vegetation of the Artemisia steppe of California. These communities are identified by dominant shrub and herbaceous species. The chapter also provides examples of several plant communities that currently characterize much of the Artemisia steppe of California.
