"Fungi are like simple plants that lack chlorophyll, the green pigment that allows most plants to convert sunlight into carbohydrate. Instead, most fungi obtain nutrients from dead plant matter. Therefore, Fungi are important decomposers in the natural world. Fungi are most active in the later stages of the compost pile, where they finish the decomposition of materials partially decomposed by bacteria."
