[Succession Notes]

Examples of Secondary Succession

Secondary succession restarts succession at a different point than that which occurs with primary succession. Succession proceeds at a quicker pace during secondary succession since soil is already pre-formed and ready for use by plants.

The following natural events are examples of factors which begin secondary succession anew:

A) Forest Fires -

B) Disease -

C) Climatic Conditions - Hurricane, tornado, drought, windstorms, etc........

D) Human Disturbance - Roadsides, clear cutting, yards, etc..........
