Summary: A new model, aiming to show that ecosystem processes may be seen as a continuing cyclic succession which is demonstrated by examples from terrestrial, forest, and aquatic systems. These systems consist of various parts of a mosaic, the cycles of which are running with shifted phases. Together, these phase shifted cycles result in a state of balance for the entire system.
