9780195203585: Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth

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.

About the Author :


James Lovelock is an independent scientist, inventor, and author. He was elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1974 and in 1990 was awarded the first Amsterdam Prize for the Environment by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. One of his inventions is the electron capture detector, which was important in the development of environmental awareness. It revealed for the first time the ubiquitous distribution of pesticide residues. He co-operated with NASA and some of his inventions were adopted in their programme of planetary exploration.
