  • 1. The oak tree has no organisms living on its bark.
    • 2. The lichen arrive and start colonising the tree bark.
      • 3. The lichen will colonise the area and will eventually cover the whole of the tree bark
        • 4. Once covered, the lichen will stay on the oak tree and will live on it till it dies or until a natural occurrence happens, e.g. an organism eats it or damage to the tree occurs.
      • 3. The moss arrive and start colonising the tree bark.
        • 4. At some point, both the lichen and moss will meet and competition between the two will occur.
          • 5. Eventually, one species will dominate over the other and will colonise the rest of the tree bark.
            • 6. Once covered, the dominant species will stay on the oak tree and will live on it till it dies or until a natural occurrence happens, e.g. an organism eats it or damage to the tree occurs.
