Climate is the statistics of weather over long periods of time.
In ecology, a community is a group or association of populations of two or more different species occupying the same geographical area and in a particular time, also known as a biocoenosis The term community has a variety of uses.

An ecosystem is a community made up of living organisms and nonliving components such as air, water, and mineral soil.
An epiphyte is an organism that grows on the surface of a plant and derives its moisture and nutrients from the air, rain, water (in marine environments) or from debris accumulating around it.
Festuca (fescue) is a genus of flowering plants belonging to the grass family, Poaceae (subfamily Pooideae).
Flora is the plant life occurring in a particular region or time, generally the naturally occurring or indigenous—native plant life.
A forb (sometimes spelled phorb) is an herbaceous flowering plant that is not a graminoid (grasses, sedges and rushes).
A forest is a large area dominated by trees.
In ecology, a habitat is the type of natural environment in which a particular species of organism lives.
Phyllis M. Faber is an American botanist who did extensive work organizing and promoting the California Native Plant Society.
Phytosociology is the branch of science which deals with plant communities, their composition and development, and the relationships between the species within them.

A salt marsh or saltmarsh, also known as a coastal salt marsh or a tidal marsh, is a coastal ecosystem in the upper coastal intertidal zone between land and open saltwater or brackish water that is regularly flooded by the tides.
Size-asymmetric competition refers to situations in which larger individuals exploit disproportionally greater amounts of resources when competing with smaller individuals.
In terms of soil texture, soil type usually refers to the different sizes of mineral particles in a particular sample.
Stand level modelling is a type of modelling in the forest sciences in which the main unit is a forested stand.
In physical geography, a steppe (p) is an ecoregion, in the montane grasslands and shrublands and temperate grasslands, savannas and shrublands biomes, characterized by grassland plains without trees apart from those near rivers and lakes.
Stratification in the field of ecology refers to the vertical layering of a habitat; the arrangement of vegetation in layers.
Sycamore Alluvial Woodland is a rare open woodland plant community, or vegetation type, dominated by California sycamore Platanus racemosa, existing only in small parts of California.

Topography is the study of the shape and features of the surface of the Earth and other observable astronomical objects including planets, moons, and asteroids.
In forestry and ecology, understory (or understorey, underbrush, undergrowth) comprises plant life growing beneath the forest canopy without penetrating it to any great extent, but above the forest floor.
Vegetation type or plant community refers to members of a group or aspect of plants that are often found growing in an area together (plant associates), or that share similar environmental conditions, characterized by the presence of one or more dominant species.
