Primary succession is when the land is originally completely empty of life. Over time, small organisms begin to develop there and produce more organisms. Primary succession in Masoala would originate with organisms being washed ashore by the ocean. Microorganisms would begin to develop and later, small producers would sprout. Eventually, larger plants such as palm trees and bamboo would grow, along with insects and small amphibians. Lastly, primates would develop, including the lemur and fossa.
