sequence · ecological succession · taking over
ETYM Latin successio: cf. French succession. Related to Succeed.
1. The action of following in order; SYN. sequence.
2. (Ecology) 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; SYN. ecological succession.
3. A group of people or things arranged or following in order.
4. Acquisition of property by descent or by will; SYN. taking over.
In ecology, a series of changes that occur in the structure and composition of the vegetation in a given area from the time it is first colonized by plants (primary succession), or after it has been disturbed by fire, flood, or clearing (secondary succession).
If allowed to proceed undisturbed, succession leads naturally to a stable climax community (for example, oak and hickory forest or savannah grassland) that is determined by the climate and soil characteristics of the area.
