Asked in Decomposers
What are kinds of decomposers?
Bacteria, fungi, millipedes, slugs, woodlice, and worms represent different kinds of decomposers. Decomposers prey on dead organisms. Bacteria are the main decomposers of dead animals and of dead plant matter, in agricultural fields and in grasslands. Fungi are the main decomposers of dead plant matter in forests. Millipedes, slugs, woodlice, and worms prey on dead organic matter. But scientifically speaking, decomposers turn dead organic matter into inorganic matter. That's one of their important contributions to the nutrient cycle. In that regard then, bacteria and fungi are...
