Table 6 Annual net primary production, NPP* (103 tons C/km2·year, density of living biomass, B* (103 tons C/km2, and density of dead organic matter, D* (103tons C/(km2, in 1 m soil); a - biome type, b - biome area (× 106km2). Biomes n°9 and n°28 are not included because of the smallness of their territories. Source: Svirezhev (2002).
