Geochemistry and the Biosphere is a meticulously edited, reader accessible, first English translation of the Russian essays by Vladimir I. Vernadsky (1863-1945). Vernadsky is the highly venerated father of several geo-based disciplines, including geochemistry, biogeochemistry, and radiogeology. He wrote the first scientific theory about the "biosphere,” the life zone of the Earth, and in the process laid the groundwork for planetary thinking. A recognized catalyst, this premier scientific work addresses in detail humanity's impact on the living systems of the planet. Geochemistry and The Biosphere contains his groundbreaking work on the biosphere and the noösphere, as well as his seminal work on geochemistry.

About the Author:

Vladimir Vernadsky (1863-1945) was a Russian geochemist and mineralogist who is considered to be one of the founders of geochemistry and biogeochemistry. This complete translation of his ground-breaking work, The Biosphere, is essential reading for anyone looking to comprehend the nature of the Earth in its planetary, cosmic scale.

Frank B. Salisbury is an American plant physiologist who served for a time as head of the Utah State University (USU) department of Plant science. He has a BS and MA from the University of Utah. He received his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology. He taught for eleven years as a professor at Colorado State University before joining the faculty of USU.

Review:

"Vernadsky was a towering pioneer in understanding life on Earth and life coevolving with Earth. His protean range and profound insight shaped our worldview and continues to anticipate our learning." -- Amory Lovins Cofounder and CEO, Rocky Mountain Institute

"It is heartening to see this result of years of careful editorial work that has given us a timeless piece of scholarship, in which we witness a truly global systems thinker who was a hundred years ahead of his time..." --Professor Tyler Volk, Codirector Earth and Environmental Science Program
