Lovelock has also hypothesised that methanogens produced elevated levels of methane ds the early atmosphere, giving a view similar to that found in petrochemical smog, similar in some respects to the atmosphere on Titan. The role of selection is to favor organisms that are best adapted to prevailing environmental conditions.

Processing of the greenhouse gas CO 2explained below, plays a critical role in the maintenance of the Earth temperature within the limits of habitability. Retrieved 7 January Delete comment or cancel. hipotesks

Compositional and other changes associated with the presence of Life”. Calcium carbonate is used by living organisms to manufacture carbonaceous tests and shells.

Lovelock states that the initial formulation was based on observation, but still lacked a scientific explanation. Of Homeostatic Gaia, Kirchner recognised two alternatives. This conference approached the Gaia hypothesis as both science and metaphor as a means of understanding how we might begin addressing 21st century issues such as climate change and ongoing environmental destruction.

Among many other speakers: Add a personal note: It is hypothesized that these are created by bacterial colonies that fix ions and heavy metals during their life processes.

Gaia hypothesis – Wikipedia

Retrieved August 27, Wholeness and Disintegration in Ecology and Science. A reduced version haia the hypothesis has been called “influential Gaia” [11] in “Directed Evolution of the Biosphere: Later, other relationships such as sea creatures producing sulfur and iodine in approximately the same quantities as required by land creatures emerged and helped bolster the hypothesis.

Some people attended. Lovelock has suggested that global biological feedback mechanisms could evolve by natural selectionstating that organisms that improve their environment for their survival do better than those that damage their environment.

The Gaia hypothesis posits that the Earth is a self-regulating complex system involving the biospherethe atmospherethe hydrospheres and the pedospheretightly coupled as an evolving system.


Gaia hypothesis

James Lovelock called his first proposal the Gaia hypothesis but has also used the term Gaia theory. The ” desiccation ” of the Mediterranean is the evidence of a functioning kidney. In his defense of Gaia, David Abram argues that Gould overlooked the fact that “mechanism”, itself, is gaka metaphor — albeit an exceedingly common and often unrecognized metaphor gsia one which leads us to consider natural and living systems as though they were machines organized and built from outside rather than as autopoietic or self-organizing phenomena.

While rejecting Gaia, we can at the same time appreciate Lovelock’s originality and breadth of vision, and recognise that his audacious concept has helped to stimulate many new ideas about the Earth, and to champion a holistic approach to studying it”.

The book’s most memorable “slogan” was actually quipped by a student of Margulis’: Chapter 5 3rd Edition. Rather than a discussion of the Gaian teleological views, or “types” of Gaia hypotheses, the focus was upon the specific mechanisms by which basic short term homeostasis was maintained within a framework of significant evolutionary long term structural change.
