  • Description

    Heterotrophic microorganisms are those that use organic matter synthesized by other organisms for energy and growth. The terminal electron acceptor in the electron transport chain is an organic compound instead of oxygen.
    Heterotrophic organisms that feed exclusively on dead organic matters such as rotting wood are called as saprophytes. Heterotrophs that feed on living organic matter such as human tissues are commonly known as parasites. Fungal cells lack chlorophyll and photosynthesis is therefore impossible. Since they consume preformed organic matter, fungi are described as heterotrophic microorganisms. Together with bacteria, fungi decompose vast quantities of dead organic matter. Yeast Dextrose Agar is recommended for isolation and cultivation of various heterotrophic organisms.
