...Gaia Hypothesis The terrestrial combination of organism and environment has unraveled mysteries that baffled scientists for centuries. Attempts are being made by scientists to decode age-old questions of how these huge expanses of greenery, mudflats, deserts, forest regions, and marine life have thrived and survived, or have been shifted due to elementary, weathering or disastrous acts of nature. Organisms and their environment Obviously, organisms and their environment are silent witnesses holding answers to unresolved questions about life and its myriad forms. Fortunately, the means to understand some of these puzzles may have been found... Titus R Manickam Order No. 185642 07 October 2007 The Gaia...

...Gaia Hypothesis: New Age Myth, or the Future of Environment Policy The term 'Gaia,' which is Greek for 'Earth Mother,' often conjures up images related to New Age spirituality or pseudo-scientific thinking. The Gaia hypothesis, however, may be seen as a concept that is teleological in essence and that seeks to explain certain fundamental realities about the nature of the planet's ecosystem. This paper argues that Gaia is not merely a hypothesis that exists at the periphery of scientific thought, but rather a revolutionizing concept that has affected environmental policies and sociological contexts as well. The Gaia hypothesis was proposed by James Lovelock and Lynn Margulis in 1972. In his... The Gaia...
