The Biomass Distribution on Earth and Humanity’s Impact

A census of the biomass on Earth is key for understanding the structure and dynamics of the biosphere. Yet, a quantitative, global view of how the biomass of different taxa compare with each other is still lacking. In this lecture, I present how we assembled the overall biomass composition of the biosphere, establishing the first census of the biomass of all the kingdoms of life. I will also discuss the far-reaching effects of humanity.
