    If you know where to get the answers why are you asking the question?

    It is biogeography> climatic climax vegetation> hydroseres.
    It is a primary succession. Algae and moss colonise clear water of the pond and prepare the way for more complex plant life forms to colonise by enriching the water with nutrients and building up the pond floor with organic matter and soil.
