    A climax community is a biological community of wildlife that through development over time in a given area have reached a steady state.  This steady state occurs due to the species in the climax community becoming best adapted to the average conditions in that given area.

    A climax community is a plant (habitat)  association that is the end stage of plant succession in a given microclimate and the wildlife adapted to that plant community.  For example:  the pioneering plants on disturbed bare soil or following a fire are what we call weeds, followed by grasses, then shrubs, and finally trees;   the plants will go from those adapted to dry sites to those able to survive as more moisture is trapped in the soil as the plant succession occurs.  The wildlife will change according to how the plant community meets their needs
