  • Primary succession on Mount St. Helens, Washing- ton State, USA, was studied using long-term observational and experimental methods. Distance from potential colonists is a major factor that impedes early primary succession. Sites near undisturbed vegetation remain low in plant cover, but species richness is comparable to intact vegetation. Sites over 500 m from sources of potential colonists have as many spe- cies, but mean species richness is much lower than in undis- turbed plots. Cover is… CONTINUE READING
