A) The island will lose all of the plant and animal populations of the island.
B) The island will lose all abiotic factors needed by plant and animal populations.
C) The island will suffer a loss of native plant and animal species.
D) The island’s ecosystem will recover due to primary succession.
Well a hurricane wouldn't destroy ALL of the the plants and animals so I think we can rule out some options there.
I don't think it would destroy ALL of the abiotic factors either...
But this is where I get stuck! Primary succession occurs in an environment in which new substrate devoid of vegetation and usually lacking soil, which MAY happen with a hurricane.. but perhaps not.
Some loss of species would occur though.
