The complexity and nature of the molecular structure of the substrate are particularly important because these characteristics define the assimilability of the nutrients by the various microorganisms. The capacity of a microorganism to assimilate a particular substrate is a function of the microorganism’s ability to synthesize the enzymes responsible for breaking down complex compounds. The complex compounds are broken down into intermediate compounds or into an element that can be utilized by the microorganism in its metabolism and synthesis of new cellular material.

Usually, the proportion of fungi increases, while bacterial numbers decline. Compounds that are not further degradable, such as lignin–humus complexes, are formed and become predominant. 5. 1. Cultivation and Molecular Techniques Browne (1933) was the first to prove that self-heating of composts is due to biological activity. In the 1930s, Waksman published several papers on the microbiology of composting, and he was the first to publish studies on the population dynamics (Waksman, 1932). , Finstein and Morris, 1975).
