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

@InvaderXan strange because I saw a few months ago an image with different numbers, especially bacteria were far far above the rest.

@phigger If you count the number of organisms, then there are substantially more bacteria. But seeing as bacteria are so small, that gives a distorted perspective. This image shows biomass instead, giving a fairer representation of how much space each form of life takes up on this planet.

@InvaderXan it counted the dry mass, not the number of individuals
