Rot, So Blatantly Called  - Fungi are organisms that get their energy by breaking down or decomposing organic matter; living and dead.  The fungi are the original recyclers.  As they decompose matter they release carbon dioxide and return nitrogenous compounds and other materials to the soil.  They belong to the Kingdom Fungi.
