Decomposers are also called reducers. They further decompose the remains of a dead creature even after a scavenger, detritivore or saprotroph has. They are organisms that break down or decompose organic materials, from which they get essential nutrients and energy. The two types of micro-organisms that normally play the role of the decomposers are fungi and bacteria. Decomposition of organic matter is generally a natural process; however the role of the decomposer is to speed up the process of decomposition.
Decomposers play a very vital role in the ecosystem. If there were no decomposers, dead and decaying organic matter would be found lying on the ground for a very long period of time. Vultures, burying beetles, blowflies and raccoons are creatures feed on the carcasses of other organic beings (both human beings and other animals that are already dead). These animals are called scavengers. Some examples of detritivores are dung beetles, millipedes, dung flies, woodlice and burying beetles.
These creatures recycle the detritus (decomposing organic material) and return it to the food chain. A saprotroph is also called a saprobe. It is a type of heterotroph that applies soluble compounds and does not make its own food. It obtains its nutrients from the decaying plant and animal matter. Many types of fungi, bacteria and protozoa are saprotrophs.
Decomposers help transform the complex organic compounds to simpler ones for there productive use once again
They do good thing to us in the ways of going into the bely
Decomposers are animals that eat the earth
