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).
