  • START
  • CATASTROPHE
  • PRIMARY SUCCESSION
  • The forest is full of greenery, barked trees and herbaceous plants alike, as well as several diverse species.
  • SECONDARY SUCCESSION
  • A fire has swept through the forest, killing all the plants, grasses, trees, and animals there, leaving a barren wasteland.
  • TERTIARY SUCCESSION
  • Some grasses and herbaceous plants have appeared after the rocky terrain received nutrients and became soil, serving as the Pioneer Species.
  • END
  • Most of the herbaceous plants remain, and some trees have sprung up, all serving as the Intermediate Plants, but not the final product.
  • Newer, thicker trees have grown, as well as newer bushes and grasses, along with some flowers. This is the Climax Community, and it looks different from the start because succession leads the way for a better ecosystem.
  • In the "final" product, animals have slowly returned to the newer ecosystem, which allows for a larger diversity in its species. While this may be the Climax Community, another disturbance may occur, starting the process over again.
