This statistic displays the weight of life on Earth, distributed by classification of various life forms. Plants make up, by far, the largest biomass on Earth, totaling 450 gigatons of carbon. Comparatively, humans account for just 0.06 gigatons of carbon. This estimate of biomass may be deeply underestimated, as there is still a lot of uncertainty.
