FUNGI ARE THE
WORLDS BEST
RECYCLERS!
The vast majority of fungi are saprophytic. This
means they live on and breakdown dead and
decaying matter. Essentially, they produce enzymes
which "rot" or "digest" the organic materials in the
substrate they are living on. In this way they return
nutrients from dead stuff back into the soil.
Without their enzymatic activities, organic material
would continue to accumulate until the world became
a huge rubbish dump of dead and decaying matter
and there would be no free nutrients in the soil in
order for plants to grow.
So if they have these composting actions – might
they be instrumental in helping our ailing and
polluted world?
