    Succession occurs differently in different places around the world. Why not all of the above? Primary succession occurs only in areas with previous vegetation, so that answer can't be right. It's the growth of life after life has been killed off, like by fire. and the guy is wrong

    Secondary succession usually occurs slower because after, say, a wildfire, then the area could have trees burnt down. So y ou'll have smaller plants growing in faster for primary succession but finally getting the trees back takes longer.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primary_succession It occurs in areas devoid of vegetation

    secondary succession occurs faster because of the availability of vegetation

    Areas that previously had vegetation though, look at the question. "Primary succession begins in areas with no previous vegetation."

    After a volcano or wildfire, that's when succession takes place. It wouldn't spontaneously take place in antarctica for instance.

    because primary succession may occur in newly formed landmasses, such as an island formed from a volcanic event

    Yeah, true, I guess typically though new land masses don't arise... But that's just perspective really. It's kinda ambiguous questioning. I'm not sure myself lol.

    1. All of the following are likely areas for secondary succession EXCEPT ____. (1 point) (0 pts) flooded land (1 pt) exposed coral reef (0 pts) abandoned logging areas (0 pts) the land after a forest fire

    I answered it as flooded land. I got it wrong though. What would you answer this as?

    Compared to the other choices, the exposed coral reef (pure carbonate) is devoid of soil and other nutrients required for secondary succession to take place.
