Organisms feed on dead or decaying organic matter are called saprophytes and their mode of nutrition as saprophytic nutrition (GK. Sapros- rotten, trophos-feeder). Saprobes secrete enzymes for extracellular digestion and the end products are absorbed and assimilated by them. Many fungi and bacteria exhibit saprophytic mode of nutrition.
