Question

The process of break down of detritus into smaller particles by detritivores is called ___ .


Solution

Fragmentation is the first step of the decomposition process of dead and decaying matter or detritus in an ecosystem. During the fragmentation of detritus, small invertebrate animals like earthworms and termites, called detritivores, feed on the detritus and then physically break down the organic matter into smaller fragments.
