Full Answer

Pioneer plants also have seeds that can lay dormant for long periods of time, waiting on conditions to improve before growing. Weeds are a common pioneering plant and can grow rapidly to fill the damaged area. These pioneer plants will often die and create plant litter that helps increase the nutrients available for plants that will grow during the secondary succession.
