It is a Biological function of living organisms to enable growth and reproduction system. Its an ecosystem includes mass of all living and dead organic matters. Production of organic matter such as body tissue, energy, nutrients , photosynthesis and meat by biomass production. In a productive environment living plant or animal tissue will accumulate over time. Biomass is the amount of this accumulated material at a given moment while production is the rate of increase in the total biomass. High biomass does not necessarily imply high production and vice versa. For example the biomass of plankton in a water body may be low but because plankton grow and reproduce quickly the plankton population may replace itself relatively quickly it has a high rate of production.
