WHAT IS SAPROPHYTIC NUTRITION

WHAT IS SAPROPHYTIC NUTRITION? Saprophytic nutrition is a process of chemoheterotrophic extracellular digestion involved in the processing of decayed organic matter.

saprophytic type of nutrition has to do with saprophytes, it is about certain types organism that live and acquire their food nutrients from another organism, meaning that they sap or live directly on top another organism Explanation of saprophytic nutrient

As organic matter decomposes within a medium in which a saprotroph is residing, the saprotroph breaks it into its composites.
Definitely you might have read in my previous post about parasitic nutrition, Autotrophic nutrition, heterotrophic nutrition. I had also written a post on endoparasites and Ecto-parasites and their mode of nutrition. If you having read them please head straight down and choose any of the links.fabioclass images

So here let’s talk about Saprophytes.

What are Saprophytic feeding

Saprophytic nutrition is a type of nutrition in which certain organisms called, the Saprophytes feeds on dead and decaying organic materials. This type of nutrition is called the saprophytic nutrition and the association involving this type of nutrition is called saprophytism.

how does saprophytes digest food

The saprophytes under saprophytic nutrition, generally, can secrete enzymes into the dead and decaying organic materials on which they grow. The enzymes so secreted, is able to digest some portions of the substrate outside the body of the saprophyte by a process called

EXTRACELLULAR DIGESTION IN SAPROPHYTIC NUTRITION.

The digested food material on the substrate is then absorbed into its body through the rhizoids. Examples of organism which exhibits saprophytic mode of nutrition are the Fungi such as Rhizopus, mushroom, mucor, toad stool and penicillium
