Biodiversity

The variety of life in the world or in a particular habitat or ecosystem.

Hot spots

Ecological succession

the gradual and orderly process of change in an ecosystem brought about by the progressive replacement of one community by another until a stable climax is established.

primary succession

Primary succession is the gradual growth of organisms in an area that was previously bare, such as rock. (For example lichens, mosses, and ferns will first appear on bare rock.)

secondary succession

Secondary succession is the series of community changes which take place on a previously colonized, but disturbed or damaged habitat.
