Hello and welcome to my Secondary Succession Comic Strip. Im pointer, and I will be your guide.
Ok, to start off we have this volcano that is about to blow, and the ecosystem around it, reseting all life in its blast zone.
where plant life comes, herbivores follow, and where herbivores are, there are natural predators. Some animals already lived in this land, they just left because of the pressure from the volcano.
We had to take out the explosion and destruction as it was to violent, but here you can see the aftermath over a few years. There is no life, but still has existing soil, seeds and roots. This is different from Primary Succession as it has a higher biomass in an area with land already touched before with life before it was wiped by a natural or manmade disaster.
But fast forward a bit and we are ready to place our first moss and plant life coming from the soil.
And there you have it, the basic premise of Secondary Succession. Until next time, adios
We start to see the surroundings flourish, making way for larger plant life and animals that have migrated into this ecosystem now thriving with life.
