I had no idea there was a separate food web for detritus? So, what exactly is detritus composed of (material from dead organisms, is all I could find...material like what?) - who/what produces detritus, and which organisms bring the detritus food web into the grazing food web (talking marine environments)? Also, in a closed system, does the detritus food web differ or lack anything compared to the ocean environment?
