subclimax

subclimax Strictly, the penultimate stage in a succession to a climatically controlled climax community (as in monoclimax theory). Typically, a subclimax community persists for a long time; for example, the forests of the Boreal Period may be considered as subclimax to the early Atlantic forests of the post-glacial climatic optimum.
