9780356175355: Guide to Gaia

Describes the Gaia hypothesis, the theory that the earth functions as a single superorganism, details the effects of pollution, and suggests implications for the future

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From Library Journal:

The Gaia hypothesis, promoted chiefly by British inventor/scientist James Lovelock, argues that life interacts with other elements to maintain the earth's overall environment. A controversial hypothesis, it has gained in importance over the last decade, providing new ways of thinking about the Earth. This book, by an associate of Lovelock, is a plainly written explanation and interpretation of Gaia. Its chief competition consists of Lovelock's own books, Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth (Oxford Univ. Pr., 1987. reprint) and The Ages of Gaia (Norton, 1988), which also are aimed at a wide audience. While not a substitute for Lovelock's works, this book can serve as a very readable overview of the Gaia hypothesis.
