So... What is the role of Ecological Succession

First, lets understand what ecological succession means. Ecological succession is the process of change in the structure of species in an ecosystem over time.

Without ecological succession, Earth would be a lot like the planet Mars (no Life). Ecological succession provides diversity and depth to a biotic community. Without it, life can not grow or progress. Succession, it seems, is the gateway to evolution. There are five main elements to ecological succession: primary succession, secondary succession, pioneer and niche species, climax communities and sub-climax communities.
