After an eruption, the pioneer species start to colonize the lava layer and form an organic substrate on which the simplest ferns and graminaceous plants begin to develop and in turn produce the organic matter that is necessary for the colonization of the soil by shrubs and other plants with a well-developed root system.
The lava of the most recent Vesuvius eruptions (1944, 1929, 1906) are widely colonized by lichens, which are capable of settling on the bare rock.
