Decomposition

HideShow resource information

Recycling of carbon and other nutrients takes longer in waterlogged soils than in well drained soils

Bacteria and fungi need oxygen to respire and produce energy when decomposing the organic material

Waterlogged soils do not have much oxygen so the decomposers have less energy and work more slowly
