An example of primary succession would be Hawaii. It used to be an island of bare rock, but primary succession lead it to be colonized with communities of plants and animals.
Getting more in depth: First of all, lichens had colonized the island and break the rock down into soil. Soon, other plants such as moss begin to appear in the area, because there is enough soil for them to survive. When those organisms decompose, that also results in the creation of more soil. Eventually, larger and larger plants appear, killing off smaller plants when they absorb the sunlight from higher up. Animals will move to the area to create a complex ecosystem.

Primary succession usually takes several hundred years to "happen."

Abandoned farmland is a very well-studied example of secondary succession. In many places in the United States, the plant life is mainly crabgrass in the first year of abandonment. The next year, horseweed takes over. The third year, weeds such as broomsedge, ragweed, and aster establish themselves in the area. From about five to fifteen years after the abandonment, pine trees become dominant. After that, oak and other hardwood trees take over.

Secondary succession begins in an area where the natural community has been disturbed.

Example: Annual weeds --> perennial weeds and grasses --> shrubs & pine seedlings --> young pine forest with developing understory of hickory & oak trees --> mature oak-hickory forest

1. Water, temperature, & soil minerals are examples of abiotic factors that can influence plant (producer) growth, which primary producers (e.g. rabbit) rely on as a food source. A secondary consumer (e.g. coyote) then eats the primary consumer. So changes in any of the abiotic factors listed above will ultimately affect the coyote population.

2. New environmental conditions allow one group of species in a community to replace other groups. Succession involves species competing for enough light, nutrients and space which will influence it's trajectory.

An example of secondary succession is perennial or annual weeds. This is process through which a component of the ecosystem revives itself.
