Description

The Gaia hypothesis was first put forward in the mid-1960s, and published in book form in 1975. It immediately had an effect on scientific views of evolution and the environment, maintaining that the Earth's living matter - air, ocean, and land surfaces, forms a complex system which has the capacity to keep Earth a fit place for life.show more

Review Text

The complex web of living and non-living cycles on Earth combining to form one organism is explained better here than ever before, with the aid of excellent illustrations. This is the best guide to Gaia to date, and should be on every thinking person's bookshelf. (Kirkus UK)show more
