2. Considering that seasonal succession is most often and clearly seen in temperate seas, which have a marked change in temperature during a year, temperature has been suggested as a cause.(TPO35-P3)


3. These vitamins are produced only by another species: hence, a succession of species could occur whereby first the vitamin-producing species is present and then the vitamin-requiring species follows.(TPO35-P3)


4. Although it is suspected that these organic metabolites may have an important role in species succession and it has been demonstrated in the laboratory that phytoplankton species vary both in their ability to produce necessary vitamins and in their requirements for such in order to grow, evidence is still inadequate as to their real role in the sea.(TPO35-P3)


5. A growing body of evidence now suggests that all of the factors considered here are operating simultaneously to produce species succession.(TPO35-P3)


6.  This change in the dominant species from season to season is called seasonal succession, and it occurs m a wide variety of locations.(TPO35-P3)


7. Darwin s theory was that the succession from one coral reef type to another could be achieved by the upward growth of coral from a sinking platform, and that there would be a progression from a fringing reef, through the barrier reef stage until, with the disappearance through subsidence (sinking) of the central island, only a reef-enclosed lagoon or atoll would survive.

13. An abandoned field, for instance, will be invaded successively by herbaceous plants (plants with little or no woody tissue), shrubs, and trees, eventually becoming a forest. Light-loving species are always among the first invaders, while shade-tolerant species appear later in the succession.(TPO19-P2)


14. Clements and other early ecologists saw almost lawlike regularity in the order of succession, but that has not been substantiated. (TPO19-P2)


15. Succession is influenced by many factors: the nature of the soil, exposure to sun and wind, regularity of precipitation, chance colonizations, and many other random processes.(TPO19-P2)


16. The final stage of a succession, called the climax by Clements and early ecologists, is likewise not predictable or of uniform composition. (TPO19-P2)


17. The nature of the climax is influenced by the same factors that influenced succession. (TPO19-P2)
