At the start of secondary succession, there is a disturbance in nature like a volcanic eruption.
After the disturbance ends, everything is wiped out. But in secondary succession, the soil is all that remains.
Next, small pioneer plants and shrubs begin to grow with rain and leftover soil.
The nutrients given by the pioneer plants make it capable for other small bushes and animals to live.
Now, trees will slowly begin to grow. Animals and more insects begin to appear.
The final step to the secondary succession is when plants and trees are fully-grown. New animals have moved to the area and developed homes for themselves.
