Ecological succession is a gradual process by which an ecosystem changes to create a different habitat with time. There could be primary and secondary succession.


As the plant community gradually changes, there is also change in faunal community. Succession is a slow but directional change and ultimately a climax community appears.

A very common example is succession of open freshwater habitats into woodlands.
