One of the truly kewl
things about this planet
! All Day, Every Day!
The soil cycle is the path taken by carcasses, turds and dead plants. They decompose
by stages, and eventually turn into soil
. The soil is eaten by plants
, which may be eaten by animals
. Then the plants and animals poop and die, the decomposers move in and munch, and the cycle starts again.
A simplistic view, but a cool one.
