Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 11:15 to 12:30 Auditorium

A census of the biomass on Earth is key for understanding the structure and dynamics of the biosphere.

In this study, we harness recent advances in global sampling techniques to assemble the overall biomass composition of the biosphere, establishing the first census of the biomass of all the kingdoms of life.
