What are pioneers?
(a) The organisms of the second seral stage
(b) The organisms of the third seral stage
(c) The organisms of the first seral stage
(d) The organisms of the fourth seral stage
I had been asked this question in unit test.
My enquiry is from Ecosystem in division Ecosystem of Biology – Class 12
Correct choice is (c) The organisms of the first seral stage
To explain I would say: The first biotic community to invade a bare land or area is known as the pioneer community. These are the organisms of the first seral stage. They further grow and expand to form a climax community.
