Explain ecological succession
An important principle of ecology is that ecosystems develop in a series of stages which must all occur in the right order – a process referred to as ‘succession’ which continues until a ‘climax’ is reached – a situation from which there is then little change, as it is the most stable one achievable…

Over the last few years I have written quite a lot about forest succession. I have published a paper on the topic, have a paper in review about recovery of a forest under multiple stressors and will be starting more work on the it over the next few weeks. All in all, I think I have a reasonable idea…

How does an ecological community develop? Ecological succession describes this process of development, identifying how the community began as well as how and when it stabilizes. Definition As you develop and grow there are certain predictable changes that will occur, and they usually happen in a specific…

Imagine a world whose land surfaces were totally barren, and whose organisms were so reduced in number that life had to recolonise those surfaces from scratch, from isolated remnants that had somehow survived cataclysmic destruction. In what order would organisms have begun to appear in the recovery…

Stipa bungeana steppe is the main pasture on the Loess Plateau of China. • Changes of climate and vegetation were analyzed based on data from 1982 to 2011. • Species diversity and biomass reached peak values in the 20th year. • Not rainfall but temperature has a positive effect on vegetation. • Rational…

It is different from Ecological Evolution because the changes that occur aren’t evolutionary in nature, but they may be adaptive. It is based on the principle and knowledge that nothing in life ever remains the same, but that all habitats are in a process of constant change as a result of the inter-dependencies…
