Vegetation at Pinnacles National Park may be broadly grouped into five major habitat types or vegetation associations, described below. These associations result from a web of interactions amongst the various plant species and such factors as soil type, direction of exposure, slope, moisture regime and fire history. Recognizing the plants that characterize an association allows us to see the patterns of these co-occurring factors. To read more about plants at Pinnacles click here.
