climax

a plant community that has reached stability and is in equilibrium with the climatic conditions appertaining at the time; for example, oak woodland in Britain. A SUCCESSION of climaxes resulting from climatic change is called a clisere, though some climax communities are the result of human interference; for example, the felling of woodland has resulted in the loss of the oak woodland, the natural climax community in lowland Britain, and of the pine forest which is the natural climax in the Highlands of Scotland.
