Ecological Succession

The process of change in a defined environmental area caused by gradual, orderly and progressive replacement of one biological community by another that results in formation of a stable (climax) community is called ecological succession. Depending on whether this change occurs on a previously unsettled area or on an area where ecological system was damaged by certain external impact two types of ecological succession are discerned — the primary and secondary succession respectively. During the succession course changes in quantity…
