I partially agree with this statement. Allelopathy is often responsible 
of dominance of some chapparal species but their is too a strong 
competition for water and nutrients.
A good paper about allelopathy in phryganic ecosystems was published by 
Despina Vokou in 1992 : "The allelopathic potential of aromatic shrubs in 
phryganic (east Mediterranean) Ecosystems, 1992. in Allelopathy : 
basic and applied aspects, Rizvi and Rizvi Eds., Chapman & Hall, pp. 
303-320.
