Imperial Succession

If you were ever one of my bio students (I hope some of you are out there!), you know that one of my favorite topics in the ecology unit is succession.

Today, I have a new type to show you. Call it "variation on a theme." The picture to your right is what I call "Imperial Succession." While it has nothing to do with the emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties, it was taken at the Forbidden City. As you can see, those Pioneer Species like grasses and weeds can, and do, grow anywhere. Secondary succession at its finest.
