Old-growth forests are an end-of-succession, climax ecosystem. They are dominated by trees of great age, but occurring within a mixed-species community with an uneven-aged population structure (that is, all tree ages are represented in the community). Early seral forest develops into mid seral habitat of large trees over the next 50 to years. Stand replacing fires recycle this stage back to early seral stages over most of the landscape. If spared high severity fires, late seral condition develops either single layer or .
It is a phenomenon or process by which an ecological community undergoes more or less orderly and predictable changes following a disturbance or the initial colonization of a new habitat. Succession may be initiated either by formation of new, unoccupied habitat, . Apr 18, · Large old-growth dominant forest trees, such as the redwoods, are part of a climax community (final and permanent stage of vegetation).Such trees develop in a biome. These trees are also refers to a n old-growth forest — also termed primary forest, virgin forest, primeval forest, late seral forest,/5(5).
Jul 01, · Complex early seral forests (CESFs) occupy potentially forested sites after a stand-replacement disturbance and before re-establishment of a closed-forest canopy. Such young forests contain numbers and kinds of biological legacies missing from those produced by commercial forestry operations. In the Sierra Nevada of California, CESFs are most often produced by mixed-severity Cited by: (1) Literature review. We searched the literature for studies on disturbance by fire, wind and bark beetles, and their impacts on ecosystem services as defined by the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MEA, ), as well as their effects on biodiversity, focusing on species richness and habitat quality as well as on indices of diversity (e.g. Shannon‐Index, Simpson‐Index, etc.).Cited by:

McKevlin Introduction Forests of the North American continent consist of diverse associations of woody and herbaceous plants. Within these forests, many species tend to occur as typical of various physiographic regions and topographic features.
Definitions of what constitutes an ‘old-growth’ forest are manifold and often ambiguous. This chapter starts with a review of existing concepts and critically examines their usefulness in the context of ecosystem functioning and forest conservation.

A DEFINITION OF OLD-GROWTH FORESTS IN THE DOUGLAS- FIR REGION It is clear that a simple, precise definition of old-growth forest is unlikely. CLASSIFICATION OF THE NATURAL COMMUNITIES OF NORTH CAROLINA THIRD APPROXIMATION INTRODUCTION This document presents a framework for the classification of natural communities in North Carolina.
A natural community is defined as: "a distinct and reoccurring assemblage of populations of plants, animals, bacteria, and fungi naturally associated. An old-growth forest — also termed primary forest, late seral forest or virgin forest — is a forest that has attained great age without significant disturbance and thereby exhibits unique ecological features and might be classified as a climax community.

14p. McMahon, Charles K. Effect of forest emissions on air quality. Old growth forest, sometimes called late seral forest or ancient forest or primary forest is an area of forest that has attained great age and exhibits unique biological features.
*evergreen forest* A forest in which there is no complete, seasonal loss of leaves (i.e. trees shed old leaves and produce new ones partially, and sometimes throughout the year, rather than during particular periods).
The trees may be softwood conifers or broad-leaved hardwoods . Complex early seral forests, or snag forests, are ecosystems that occupy potentially forested sites after a stand-replacement disturbance and before re-establishment of a closed forest canopy.
