Ms. Jefferson's Class Succession Story board

Storyboard Text

  • In the beginning of primary succession,the glacier retreats and lava flow leave behind nothing.Rocks are the only things that remain from this as the start of the pioneer stages.
  • But,as time goes by small, minuscule shreds of life begin to grow.As the ecosystem begins to regrow from nothing.
  • During this stage,tiny plants and lichen grow.But,they grow at an slow,but annual rate.
  • As the pioneer stage ends,the land slowly becomes more vibrant.This also makes way for a multitude of grass and perennials to grow to add on to the increasing greenery.
  • As the pioneer stage ends,the intermediate phase initiates.With this a diverse selection of plants such as shrubs,shade-intolerant trees,and an increasing growth in grass.
  • A climax community finally comes to be after the intermediate stage is completed.Now,the forest is fully-grown and riddled and filled with life and various organisms from hundreds of years of development.
