Types of Decomposers


Welcome to MooMooMath, and types of decomposers. In this video I would like to look at several
types of decomposers. A decomposer is an organism that breaks down
dead or decaying organisms. Decomposers help recycycle matter in an ecosystem
by breaking down dead or decaying organisms. Take a look at this decaying banana. Decomposers are heterotrophs which mean they
use other organisms to get their energy,carbon, and other nutrients for growth and development. We will focus on four main types of decomposers. Fungi
Insects Worms
Bacteria Fungi break down and recycle organic material
by predigesting. Fungi produce enzymes that break down and
digest decaying and dead matter and then absorb this material. This process depends on water so most fungi
are found in moist areas. Check out these fungi. Worms are also decomposers. They play an important role in producing our
soil. Earthworms help decompose organic material,
and help make nutrients like phospate more readily available. Bacteria are tiny organisms, and they are
the king of decomposition. Bacteria are found almost everywhere on earth. They help release important nutrients that
living organisms have absorbed. They then release these important nutrients
like nitrogen and carbon back into an ecosystem. Several insects like flies and dung beatles,
maggots, and ants, help break down once living organisms. Check out this dung beatle. They are several major groups of decomposing
insects. Those insect that feed on dead or decaying
plant tissues. Those that feed on dead animals. Those animals like the dung beatle that feed
on excretement of other animals. Take a look at these decomposing insects. Thanks for watching types of decomposers.

  1. This is a great video! I would say the music is too loud in relation to your voice. Louder voice, quieter music would make it even better. I love the time-lapse videos.

  2. nice video mate ! i saw some comments saying that they could not hear well, but this can be solve by wearing headphone !

  3. Boo he messed up his speaking like fifty times πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

  4. Music was a little bit loud, quieter music, louder voice. Otherwise though, it was a very informational video, and helped me a lot with, my homework!

  5. Video content is very good, but the music is too loud and distracting for students. The narrator's voice is too soft and can't be clearly heard about the music noise.
