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.
