Microbes as Decomposers
Decomposition is the Process in which complex organic matter is broken down into simpler forms. This process breaks down dead & decaying organic matter into simple inorganic forms.
Organisms which help in decomposition are termed as ’Decomposers’. Bacteria & Fungi are important Decomposers.
Decomposers help the environment to get rid of dead & decaying matter and also enrich the soil quality for better growth of plants.
