Scrub (shrubland, scrubland, brush) is a plant community characterized by vegetation dominated by shrubs (bush), often also including grasses, herbs, and geophytes. It may be the mature vegetation type in a particular region and remain stable over time, or a transitional community that occurs temporarily as the result of a disturbance, such as fire.

Notes

The widely-used Anderson (1976) classification system has detailed descriptions of scrub. Particular attention should be paid to these classifications:

  • 3 Rangeland
    • 31 Herbaceous Rangeland
    • 32 Shrub and Brush Rangeland
    • 33 Mixed Rangeland

Corresponding landcover types in National Landcover Database (NLCD2006) and National Landcover Database (NLCD2011) are modified from the Anderson system:

  • 5 Shrubland
    • 51 Dwarf Scrub - (Alaska only) areas dominated by shrubs less than 20 centimeters tall with shrub canopy typically greater than 20% of total vegetation. This type is often co-associated with grasses, sedges, herbs, and non-vascular vegetation.
    • 52 Shrub/Scrub - areas dominated by shrubs; less than 5 meters tall with shrub canopy typically greater than 20% of total vegetation. This class includes true shrubs, young trees in an early successional stage or trees stunted from environmental conditions.

Herbaceous, sedge, lichen, moss and wetlands (woody or herbaceous) are better tagged as features other than 'scrub'.
