Fig. 15.5. A scheme that allows biomass concentrations to be expressed on either an absolute basis or a relative basis

The dry solids in the moist sample used for biomass determination, this sample being of fresh mass M„ can then be calculated as:

The amount of biomass (or biomass component) within the sample will then be determined. The biomass content on a relative basis can then be calculated as:

The biomass content on an absolute basis is given by:
