One example is marine fungi.
Copepods, starfish , and shrimp will eat detritus and waste producing ammonia and nitrogen. Nitrifying bacteria will convert nitrites(ammonia and nitrogen) to a less harmful hydroxylamine
Three ways organisms could be organized: 1. By what they eat (carnivore, herbivore, omnivore) 2. By where they live (trees, underground, open ocean, shoreline) 3. By how they move
