When can primary succession begin?

1 Answer

The primary succession begins on lifeless areas.


  1. The lifeless areas such as the lands of lava, lands left by the glaciers, etc., are succeeded by first colonizers. The bare lands are first of all colonised by different microorganisms. The microorganisms gradually facilitate the growth of more and more complex higher plants and animals.
  2. The secondary succession is initiated at lands, where previuosly life was existed. Thank you
