Dam operations can affect mixing of the water column, thereby influencing thermal heterogeneity spatially and temporally. This occurs by restricting or eliminating connectivity in longitudinal, lateral, vertical, and temporal dimensions. We examined . Forest ecosystems tend to always be moving toward maturity or into what foresters call a climax maturing, also called forest succession, of the ecosystem increases diversity up to the point of old age where the system slowly forestry example of this is the growth of trees and the entire system moving toward an old growth forest.

Thus, forest ecology is a highly diverse and important branch of ecological study.  Forest ecology studies share characteristics and methodological approaches with other areas of terrestrial plant ecology. However, the presence of trees makes forest ecosystems and their study unique in numerous ways.

Human activity has been affecting the environment for thousands of years, from the time of our very earliest ancestors. Since Homo sapiens first walked the earth, we have been modifying the environment around us through agriculture, travel and eventually through urbanization and commercial networks.Soil-plant co-stimulation during forest vegetation restoration in a subtropical area of southern China.
Soil and vegetation have a direct impact on the process and direction of plant community succession, and determine the structure, function, and productivity of ecosystems.
