Decomposers break down dead organisms and produce?
Decomposers break down dead organisms which produce carbon dioxide and nutrients. These nutrients are then used by other organisms such as plants.
Decomposers break down matter from dead organisms into simpler substances that can be recycled in ecosystems. Decomposers and scavengers break down dead plants and animals. They also break down the waste (poop) of other organisms. Decomposers are very important for any ecosystem. If they weren't in the ecosystem, the plants would not get essential nutrients, and dead matter and waste would pile up. GROSSS There are two kinds of decomposers, scavengers and decomposers.
Decomposers are organisms that break down dead or decaying organisms, and in doing so carry out the natural process of decomposition. Decomposers break down (or consume) leaf litter, dead organisms and other detritus. In doing this they release nutrients trapped in the dead material back into the soil, making it available to plants and other primary producers, continuing the nutrient cycle of an ecosystem. General catagories of decomposers are: worms molds fungi (the primary and…
