Gaia’s Body: Toward a Physiology of Earth
Tyler Volk (au). Gaia, the largest entity in the nested system of life on Earth, is not an organism, but it shows a kind of physiology with internal dynamics. This implies physiologic functions, chemical cycles, that have some role in long-term stability. Describes the system of life, soil, ocean, & air that is termed the biosphere. Shows how every important chemical in the atmosphere is regulated by living processes; why strange bacteria off the coast of Chile have an intimate connection with the plants in your backyard; why “biochemical guilds” may be Earth’s most important unit of life; & how scientists have detected the “breathing” of the biosphere. Examines long-term trends in Earth’s evolution & examines humanity’s role in Gaia’s past & future. Illustrations.
