What makes wood rot?

When fresh water soaks into wood, it provides the perfect environment for fungus growth which then results in rot. When the moisture is extreme, extremely tiny bugs will destroy the wood. Although not technically rot, post beetles and other various kinds of termites and ants will damage wood beyond repair. By the way, there is no such thing as dry rot and while on the subject, there is no such thing as an air pocket, as in The plane fell out of the sky after hitting an air pocket.
