About the Author:

Vaclav Smil is a professor at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada.

Review:

Cycles Of Life: Civilization And The Biosphere explores the crucial insight that, through their participation in biogeochemical cycles, living organisms act as a tremendously important agent of change in their environment. For example, the composition of the atmosphere has been affected by microscopic organisms of the ocean, the climate by Earth's vegetation, soil chemistry by microbes on and beneath the planet's surface. Based on the latest scientific research, Cycles Of Life is an authoritative, engaging introduction to the workings of the biosphere, one that calls for thoughtful environmental management while remaining sensible in its recommendations for preventing further environmental damage. Cycles Of Life is highly recommended reading for anyone concerned with the globally relevant environmental issues. -- Midwest Book Review
