Can paper rot?

Paper rots or mildews if it gets damp, it yellows with age, and perhaps it crumbles. Deterioration of materials over time is inevitable, but we can control how fast it happens. Some materials are susceptible to deterioration because of their composition and others as a result of storage conditions.
