Fungal fruiting bodies. Artwork of fruiting bodies (mushrooms) of a fungus growing on dead wood and leaf litter on a woodland floor. Such fungi are saprophytes, feeding on dead organic matter and playing a vital role in the decay process. Such organisms play an important role in biogeochemical cycles such as the nitrogen and phosphorus cycles.
