Is still wide open. Fenchel (1971), however, after reviewing evidence that detritus feeders are in fact living on the microflora associated with dead plant material, considered it probable that the only significant primary decomposers of marine benthos are the bacteria. In the opinion of Ferguson Wood (1967), there is no great activity of saprophytic fungi in any marine environment. This view on the evidence seems extreme, but the fungi do appear to be of secondary importance to the bacteria. Saprophytic representatives of all the main groups of fungi have been recorded in the sea (Zobell, 1946; Sparrow, i960; Johnson and Sparrow, 1961; Johnson, 1968), but ecological studies have centred on littoral habitats and lignicolous species.
