This takes place in the Piney Woods of Texas. There are crickets, woodpeckers, there is the occasional Bald Eagle. There are grasses, there are tall trees, there is a few weeds as well. There are also quite a few crickets. There is also woodpeckers flying around. This is the climax community for this area.
1st Successive Plant
A few campers left there campfire lit, which started to spread thanks to it being a windy day. It lit some dry grass on fire and it spread even more from there. Everything caught on fire. The only thing left after was ashes. All the animals were forced to fled, leaving them to start a new life. Ashes flew in to a nearby river, polluting it for who knows how long.
2nd Successive Plant
After the fire, there was nothing left but dirt. Over time, grass started to grow back. Once there was a decent amount of grass, some crickets slowly moved back into the area, but only because they had grass to feed on.
3rd Successive Plant
Slowly, larger grasses/shrubs started to grow giving the crickets more food. More grasses are also coming in. Small lizards are showing up to eat the crickets, in turn keeping their population under control. The ecosystem is slowly thriving and becoming more sustainable.
There are more grasses, weeds, and crickets. Trees are also slowly coming in, they are bound to get bigger but right now they are kind of small. Woodpeckers are also showing up, taking shelter in the trees and eating both the crickets and occasionally a small lizard.
Because of the abundance of crickets, bald eagles are coming in to eat them. The trees still provide shelter for the woodpeckers, and the bald eagles use fallen sticks to form their nests. The ecosystem is the most self sustainable and biodiverse it has ever been.
