Glossary of "Environmental Science: Earth as a Living Planet (2nd ed.)" by Botkin & Keller (1998)

  • The Gaia hypothesis states that the surface environment of the Earth, with respect to such factors as the atmospheric composition of reactive gases (for example, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and methane), the acidity-alkalinity of waters, and the surface temperature are actively regulated by the sensing, growth, metabolism and other activities of the biota. Interaction between the physical and biological system on the Earth’s surface has led to a planetwide physiology which began more than 3 billion years ago and the evolution of which can be detected in the fossil record.
