Default All Biomass is sunlight



Hi all,

Im writing a paper discussing the following statement:

"All Biomass is sunlight"


I was wondering if anyone knew any good websites which includes scientific arguments that contradict this statement as well as those that support it. Any suggestions and help will be appreciated thanks in advance.

Great point Hokie, but do these organisms depend on a biochain of organisms that are supplied with sunlight?

I think there was one find in Brazil? Mexico? in a cave where there were proto-archaea/bacteria and other organisms living in completely isolated dark conditions.

Hi Friend,

The sun is an enormous source of cheap and environmentally friendly energy, which is unfortunately only used to a limited extend. The most common use of solar energy is by the cultivation of plants.
