Decomposers That Live in the Desert?

The main decomposers in a desert ecosystem are bacteria and fungi. This is due to the fact that bacteria and fungi are ubiquitous in every habitat on Earth. It is a misconception that dung beetles and termites are decomposers in the desert as they are not adapted to the harsh climatic conditions of deserts.
