RECYCLING LIFE I. Introduction A. Definition B. Importance
Decomposing The importance of decomposition is the breaking of chemical bonds to release energy, inorganic molecules, and atoms into the environment. stems from the recycling of material to sustain future generations of life.
1. Early a. Leeching Dissolving of soluble molecules by water or other solvents. b. Fragmenting Don’t make this a hard concept! 2. Late a. Mineralization Release of organically bound minerals into an inorganic form. Do you help with this process?
1. Macro-flora and Macro-fauna a. Protistans and Monerans 2. Micro-flora and Micro-fauna a. Fungi and Animals
II. Process A. Plant Material
1. Players a. Animals Fungi Bacteria b. Depends on molecular quality
1. Steps a. Leeching b. Fragmentation c. RatesSimple Sugars Protein Complex Sugars
B. Animal Material
1. Players a. Animal Larva Bacteria b. Easier due to molecular quality
