Human activity frequently impacts natural communities, accelerating change. The Brandwein Nature Learning Preserve offers evidence about human intervention in its recent past. As organisms grow, they change their own habitat including the abiotic factors around them. As they do so, they may change the conditions which favor various organisms and the community gradually changes over time. This relatively predictable series of change over time is called “succession.” See activity, “Brandwein CSI: Exploring the Past Based on Observations today.
