Random information on the term “Decompose”:
Pallor mortis (Latin: pallor “paleness”, mortis “of death”), the first stage of death, is an after-death paleness that occurs in those with light/white skin.
Pallor mortis occurs almost immediately, generally within 15–25 minutes, after death. Paleness develops so rapidly after death that it has little to no use in determining the time of death, aside from saying that it either happened less than 30 minutes ago or more, which could help if the body were found very soon after death.
Pallor mortis results from the collapse of capillary circulation throughout the body. Gravity then causes the blood to sink down into the lower parts of the body, creating livor mortis.
A living person can look deathly pale. This can happen when circumstances make the blood escape from the surface of the skin, as in deep shock. Also heart failure (insufficientia cordis) can make the face look grey; the person then also has blue lips. Skin can also look deathly pale as a result of vasoconstriction as part of the body’s homeostatic systems in cold conditions, or if the skin is deficient in vitamin D, as seen in people who spend most of the time indoors, away from sunlight.
Random information on the term “Rot”:
Decomposition is the process by which organic substances are broken down into simpler organic matter. The process is a part of the nutrient cycle and is essential for recycling the finite matter that occupies physical space in the biosphere. Bodies of living organisms begin to decompose shortly after death. Animals, such as worms, also help decompose the organic materials. Organisms that do this are known as decomposers. Although no two organisms decompose in the same way, they all undergo the same sequential stages of decomposition. The science which studies decomposition is generally referred to as taphonomy from the Greek word taphos, meaning tomb.
One can differentiate abiotic from biotic substance (biodegradation). The former means “degradation of a substance by chemical or physical processes, e.g., hydrolysis. The latter means “the metabolic breakdown of materials into simpler components by living organisms”, typically by microorganisms.
