Which of the following community develops during the end of the biotic succession?
(a) Pioneering community
(b) Climax community
(c) Primary community
(d) Secondary community
This question was addressed to me during an interview.
This key question is from Ecological Succession topic in portion Ecosystem of Biology – Class 12
Right option is (b) Climax community
The explanation is: The changes in the community are constant, orderly and sequential. These changes lead to the formation of a stable, self-perpetuating and final biotic community that developed during the end of biotic succession known as a climax community.
