At what rate does decomposition occur when detritus is rich in nitrogen and sugars?
The question was posed to me during an online interview.
My question is taken from Ecosystem in chapter Ecosystem of Biology – Class 12
Right choice is (b) Faster
The explanation: When detritus is rich in nitrogen and sugars, the decomposition occurs at a faster rate. The physical and chemical process of break down complex organic remains (dead or decaying organisms) into inorganic substances is called decomposition.
