Glossary Term: Primary Decomposer

Primary decomposers are the first to show up and thrive in the decomposition process, allowing for secondary decomposers (often other types of fungi) to eventually begin a new phase of breaking down material such as wood chips.

Note: Compare this term to Secondary Decomposer, Tertiary Decomposer, and Intermediate Decomposer.
