Among the following, where do you think the process of decomposition would be the fastest?
A. Tropical rain forest
C. Dry arid region
D. Alpine region
The tropical forest receives less solar radiation and the soil in these regions are very rich in minerals and humus so, the moisture and the temperature conditions of these environments are very much favourable for high microbial activity and the presence of leaves and other organic components makes the decomposition rate higher and faster.
