In this paper, we introduce the total graph of £, denoted by ${rm T}(G (£))$. It is the graph with all elements of £ as vertices, and for distinct $x, y in £$, the vertices $x$ and $y$ are adjacent if and only if $x vee y in {rm Z}(£)$. The basic properties of the graph ${rm T}(G (£))$ and its subgraphs are studied. We investigate the properties of the total graph of $0$-distributive lattices as diameter, girth, clique number, radius, and the independence number.http://cgasa.sbu.ac.ir/article_50749_c43feee35e55c325b3f13fa98313523d.pdf
