SAPROTROPHIC NUTRITION /sæprəˈtrɒfɪk, -proʊ-/ or LYSOTROPHIC NUTRITION is a process of chemoheterotrophic extracellular digestion involved in the processing of decayed organic matter. It occurs in saprotrophs and heterotrophs , and is most often associated with fungi (for example Mucor ) and soil bacteria . Saprotrophic microscopic fungi are sometimes called SAPROBES; saprotrophic plants or bacterial flora are called SAPROPHYTES (sapro- + -phyte, "rotten material" + "plant"). The process is most often facilitated through the active transport of such materials through endocytosis within the internal mycelium and its constituent hyphae
