comment Statement about Tropical Rainforests
Well, to be honest, what you have is a statement laden with ambiguities, so to claim any truth in it, you'd have to be absolutely precise with the language. If you made this statement to scientists, most if not all would assume you would have ballpark figures for "immediate", etc. with references to back them up. I'm not sure what anyone can offer you in an answer beyond that.

I think you need to clarify that point in your statement, then. I would not buy that it happens immediately, nor would I buy that it is degraded into "minerals", likely there is some state where it is detritus and is then processed further by microorganisms.

I don't quite follow your logic of why a dead leaf should be immediately turned into minerals.
