pioneer plant stage
Pioneer species, such as lichens and mosses grow on the surface of rocks.
it breaks up rocks into soil during primary succession
Primary succession occurs after a volcanic eruption or earthquake; it involves the breakdown of rocks by lichens to create new, nutrient-rich soils
The parts of the ecosystem that had to be established before the primary succession shown in the transparency could occur is the lichens, rocks and soil...also that the mosses, ferns, shrubs, and grasses are parts of the primary succession.
lichens affect the enviroment by breaking down rocks in primary succsesion
Primary Succession begins from scratch and it forms from desolate land. Primary Succession needs time to pass starting from rocks to lichens and mosses to grasses, etc. Secondary Succession, on the other hand, is formed from a disaster or human interaction on an ecosystem that was most likely in bad shape. Secondary Succession will definetely help an ecosystem because it adds more nutrients to the soil afterwards. I hope this helps! This is just from my own knowledge.
Because it is the part of the rock that is exposed top sunlight.
yes, The lichens and mosses help to form soil by secreating acids on the rocks they cling to, also when lichens die they create soil so that one day the soil can support grasses that can support brushes and shrubs which can support, red alders then doug firs then cedars and hemloch
Primary and secondary succession differ in terms of previous colonization of a habitat.

Parking lot is considered primary succession, because no organisms previously lived on it. Parking lots can be considered like rocks, which also undergo primary succession. Overtime soil will be blown onto the parking lot and if not maintained plants will begin to grow thus starting new life= primary succession.
Lichens and mosses erode rocks by producing acids. These acids lead to the deterioration of rocks, such as limestone and marble.
Lichens provide food, break up rocks and provide a warning of air pollution.
Nanovolumes of acids released from lichens react with rocks and minerals.
The first stage is when rocks start to form and the last stage is the last stage.
plants which grow on rocks are called lichens.
Lichens are an important food source. Lichens are also important in the weathering process of rocks.
Lichens are an important part of the environment. Lichens are a main part of the food source for many animals, and also important for the weathering of rocks.
New oceanic islands and new rocks formed by solidifying lava .
Lichens and mosses help to form soil by breaking down the rocks that they are attached to.
The basic thing to know, is the primary succcesion occurs w/o any dirt presnt. The pioneer species, lichens and mossess, break down any rocks present to create soil. Secondary succesion occurs when there is already soil present, but the land has been cleared, like after a fire.
