A reduction in the number of viable seeds in the soil due to earthworm digestion could be counterbalanced by enhanced germination of the seeds that earthworms egest. We did not find any evidence to support this idea when we compared the germination of egested seeds against those that had not been egested.
"For 35 years Lippmann seemed to do nothing more than ingest the Times every morning, turn it over in his ponderous cud for a few days, and then methodically egest it in the form of a drop of mush on the foreheads of thousands of readers of other newspapers in the days thereafter," he wrote in a 1972 New York magazine article about the New Journalism.

Mussels filter ambient suspended matter from the water column, sort and process particles, and egest three different types of biodeposits (Dame 1993).
Although the Jurassic troodontid Anchiornis has been recently demonstrated to have egested pellets similar to extant carnivorous birds (most famously documented in owls), this ability was apparently absent in Microraptor, further adding to the evidence that the evolutionary transition from dinosaur to bird was characterized by extreme homoplasy - that is, numerous traits evolved multiple times independently in closely related groups.
"Comparison of ingested remains preserved across Paraves suggests that dromaeosaurids retained the plesiomorphic condition in which ingested prey were fully digested, rather than egested, as has been demonstrated was the case in the probable troodontid Anchiornis," the researchers wrote in their ( study .
