Report

Ref. question 5

As succession continues, in the later stages, bioadversity can actually decrease because a dominate specie(s) can out-compete other species, especially low rising plants, in an environment. This is why woods are often named after the most abundant and most distributed plant in the environment e.g. an oak forest.
