California is a state located on the West Coast of the United States. Nicknamed "The Golden State," it is the most populous and thirdlargest state by land area, after Alaska and Texas. ? California's diverse geography ranges from the Pacific Coast to the west, to the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the east, to the Mojave Desert areas in the southeast and to the Redwood–Douglas-fir forests of the northwest. ? Its five largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, and Fresno. ?


In 1821, Alta California became a part of Mexico . following its successful war for independence


Western areas of Alta California became the state of California, which was admitted as the 31st state on September 9, 1850.



? Settled by successive waves of arrivals during the last 10,000 years, California was one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse areas in preColumbian North America.

California's climate varies from Mediterranean to subarctic.
Much of the state has a Mediterranean climate, with cool, rainy winters and dry summers. The cool California Current offshore often creates summer fog near the coast. Further inland, one encounters colder winters and hotter summers.


? California is one of the richest and most diverse parts of the world, and includes some of the most endangered ecological communities. California is part of the Nearctice cozone and spans a number of terrestrial ecoregions . ? California's large number of endemic species includes relict species, which have died out elsewhere, such as the Catalina Ironwood .Many other endemics originated through differentiation or adaptive radiation, whereby multiple species develop from a common ancestor to take advantage of diverse ecological conditions such as the California lilac (Ceanothus). Many California endemics have become endangered, as urbanization, logging, overgrazing, and the introduction of exotic species have encroached on their habitat.
