Vernadsky, Vladimir. 1998. The Biosphere. Translated from Russian, 1926. Springer-Verlag: NY

Vernadsky recognized the connections between life and Earth decades before this view became widely accepted by scientists. Largely unknown outside Russia, this volume makes his work available to English-speaking audiences for the first time.
