Ecological Succession

Paul Andersen describes the process of ecological succession. During this process life reestablished itself after a disturbance. During primary success all of the material is removed including the soil. For example during a volcanic eruption all traces of life are removed. However during secondary success the soil remains intact. An example of secondary success is wildfires.

Wonderful pictures to add to the explanations. Very helpful to have additional examples that I haven't used before.
