Transcript of Pioneer Species

The End Adaptations Example About Pioneer species Definition of Pioneer Species:
Pioneer Species are hardy species, which are the first to colonize an ecosystem. They first start out as a chain of ecological succession that ultimately leads to a more bio-diverse steady-state ecosystem. The pioneer species are often hardy plants with things that help them adapt to the land such as long root or having root nodes holding nitrogen-fixing bacteria. Pioneer Species An example of ecological succession, starting with a pioneer species, occurs when a volcano erupts and completely covers an area with lava. It would wipe out all plants and animals living there. After the lava cooled and hardened, it would be very difficult for plants to survive, because of the lack of soil. Pictures: - They are the first to colonize in a area.
- The first species are the first stages of ecological succession.
-Common pioneer species include bacteria , fungi, and lichens.
-They are well-adapted to dispersing their young/offspring to new locations.
-Once the Pioneer species die they will create plant litter and break down as leaf mold. About Pioneer Species : By: Eva Lynn
