The Web of Life (22-4-2) Death for Life

 Death for Life

A tree falls in the forest. Thus begins a feast for beetles, fungi, and other death-loving detrivores.

If the tree falls into water, fish are better fed, thanks to decomposers that put nutrients in the drink. Other trees may use a rotting log as a base for their growth.

In the trophic gyre, every death sires life. A corpse is but a seed to a new cycle of animation.
