Saprotrophic microbes

Saprotrophs are key in recycling dead plant matter. This ensures that the nutrients are returned back to the soil and then consumed again by the plants. Some saprotrophs can switch allegiances and turn to parasites too. They are also act as a link to plant beneficial microbes, where those organisms can process the nutrients further and feed them back to the plants.
