 Ecological succession - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ecological succession, a fundamental concept in ecology, refers to more-or-less predictable and orderly changes in the composition or structure of an ecological community.
Ecological succession was formerly seen as having a stable end-stage called the climax (see Frederic Clements), sometimes referred to as the 'potential vegetation' of a site, shaped primarily by the local climate.
Understanding of succession was long dominated by the theories of Frederic Clements, a contemporary of Cowles, who held that successional sequences of communities (seres), were highly predictable and culminated in a climatically determined stable climax.

 Practical Application of Gaelic Irish Tanistic Succession
Under the Irish system of tanistic succession (as opposed to the English system of pure primogeniture), a "Tanist" i.e., "heir apparent" or, in Gaelic, "Tanaiste", "the expected one", may be nominated by the current Chief, and may be any suitable male from within his 'derbhfine'.
The Irish mode of succession is tanistry, a concept that the English conquerors tried very hard to suppress, offering Irish princes English Earldoms governed by primogeniture in exchange ("Surrender & Re-grant") for abdication of their ancient royal and princely ranks governed by the old Gaelic form of salic tanistry.
A candidate for succession must have a pedigree fully satisfactory to a Council of Chiefs (suppporting the salic form of tanistic succession), be ready, willing and able to assume the Chiefship, and have a superior rather a merely "senior" right to the Chiefship.
