Decomposers are micro-organisms that convert the dead plants and animals to humus.

Bacteria and fungi are the two types of decomposers.

They help in the process of recycling of nutrients by decomposing various dead organisms such as plants and animals to form humus.

Decomposers have very vital role to play in the forests. Decomposers feed on the remains of dead animals and plants, also they decay the bio degradable waste. They convert waste into the usable form by plants. Thus they remove the waste substances from the forest and helps in maintating a clean ecosystem. Fungi and bacterias act as decomposers.

Decomposers decompose the waste matter and convert them to nutrients to the soil. They increase fertility. Eg: Vultures, bacteria in the soil.
