The existing hermatypic coral community is composed of localities in different successional ages. Data sets were selected from original sampling data to deduce the trajectory of community structure in this and subsequent papers. Patterns of species composition and abundance distribution during community succession in the scope of different habitats were described in this paper. It is found that the effect of succession on community structure is closely correlated with the environmental conditions. Each coral assemblage in different habitat has its own distinguishing temporal pattern of species composition and abundance distribution.
