Chaparral regions are normally found from 30-50 degrees North 40 degrees South latitude. Mid-latitude climate and lie in a belt of prevailing westerly winds. This is why they tend to be on the west sides of continents. The harsh weather patterns make it hard for most plants and animals to flourish hence why there is less variety in species.
The soil in the chaparral isn't high in nutrients leaving the soil vulnerable to erosion. Only certain plants can survive and tend to take over do to the lack of competition and tough conditions.
