Vegetation succession and climax vegetation (i.e. temperate deciduous woodland); a lithosere.

· Definitions of concepts, such as, sere, climax, etc..
Temporal change from pioneer species through seral stages to climax vegetation.
· Changes in structural complexity, biomass, number of species, productivity, etc..

Opportunities for primary source collection:
vegetation;soil transect profile; measurement of physical characteristics in a physical environment.
Soils and succession.

Recent evidence used to identify changes in vegetation.

· Similar to biological evidence from global warming, plus carbon dating, historical records, etc..

The effects of human activities on vegetation successions.


Definitions of deflected! secondary succession, sub-climax and plagioclimax.
· Impact of deforestation, afforestation, fire, grazing, ploughing, urbanisation, etc..
