Climax vegetation are those plants which form the stable, long term ecosystem in a given environment.

For instance in Europe after the Ice sheets melted, the ground was barren of plants. Then slowly mosses, grasses and small plants colonised the area, building up a soil humus, then more shrubby plants were able to grow and the ecosystem got richer. Finally deciduous forest trees were able to establish and the region became forested. These plants then formed the long term stable vegetation cover and are therefore called the climax vegetation. If you go further north deciduous forest gives way to evergreen pine forest as in this environment pine trees are the climax vegetation.

Turning point of a work?


When does the action move toward the climax?

The climax of any written work is where the tension/thrill/drama has reached its highest point. There is a build up going towards the climax, and then a calming after the climax. Often the climax will occur near the end of the work, but not the end of the work. In Of Mice and Men the climax occurs when Lennie kills Curley's wife. Drama is built up to that point at which it is released. In Brave New World the climax occurs when The Savage is throwing Soma out of the window.
