Ecological Succession

Secondary succession could occur in this biome by a forest fire. When a forest fire occurs, the plant and animal life is distroyed. This can be a good thing and everything will be restored naturally after a while. This maturing process could take up to 150 years.

Current Threats: forest fires, and deforestation.Solutions: replant several trees, make sure to put your fire out when you leave.
