Expert Answer:

1. Fungi cause decay by releasing enzymes onto the dead animal or plant. These break down complex compounds into simple soluble ones that can be absorbed by decomposers. Organisms that feed on dead material in this way are called saprophytes. 
 
2. Bryophytes are the terrestrial land plant with marshy habitat and they need water during sexual reproduction.So, bryophytes are called amphibians of plant kingdom.
