What are called biotic degradation and abiotic degradation?
Degradation is the process by which a substance is broken down into smaller molecules.
Biotic Degradation: Microorganisms such as fungi and bacteria are prime factors responsible for biotic degradation.
Abiotic Degradation: It is a prominent process that mainly occurs under the influences of hydrolysis and photolysis. In abiotic degradation, the inorganic substances are broken down.
