1. Succession

1.1. Primary

1.1.1. Succession that develops a community of plants and animals in an area where no living things existed before.

1.1.2. Pioneer Organisms Lichen, algae and fungi as well as other abiotic factors.

1.2. Secondary

1.2.1. Succession that develops a community in an area after it has been disturbed. Trophic interaction, initial composition, and competition
