Polite reminder: Earth is a tree planet with some bacteria. Everything else is just the extra stuff that lives here too.

@InvaderXan It reminds me this little image, from the appendix of

BAR-ON, Yinon M., PHILLIPS, Rob and MILO, Ron, 2018. The biomass distribution on Earth. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. 19 June 2018. Vol. 115, no. 25, p. 6506–6511. DOI 10.1073/pnas.1711842115.

@im It's quite saddening to realise this fact, really.

@InvaderXan
This applies to carbon, too? I am still thinking about, if the carbon content in plants isn't generally higher than in animals (70 % water). Why is carbon the element of interest?

@Antzessin "A quantitative description of the distribution of biomass is essential for taking stock of biosequestered carbon and modeling global biogeochemical cycles, as well as for understanding the historical effects and future impacts of human activities."
