About this book

Following on from James Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis, which suggests that Earth is a giant living organism, the author asks whether such an organism can possibly reproduce. He argues that it is time that we stopped thinking of ourselves as a super-species. Human beings and all our inventions are just part of nature, helping Mother Earth to produce strange new children. This challenging book illuminates the pioneering biospherical experiments of the past and present – and gives us a glimpse into the future, not just of our species, but of the planet as a whole.
