Lynn Margulis

Nowadays many of your ideas, such as the fact that chloroplasts began as cyanobacteria and that mitochondria arose from oxygen respiring bacteria are accepted.

The Gaia Theory posits that the organic and inorganic components of Planet Earth have evolved together as gsia single living, self-regulating system.

Lynn Margulis – Wikipedia

The origin of bacterial cells is the origin of life itself. Wikiquote has quotations related to: Ramsey Jack Steinberger In this regard, the end of the following chapter has comments on Margulis and her work by Daniel C. Marvin Minsky Mathematician; computer scientist; Professor of It is hypothesized that these are created by bacterial colonies that fix ions and heavy metals during their life processes.


Like other early presentations of Lovelock’s idea, the Lovelock-Margulis paper seemed to give living organisms complete agency in creating planetary self-regulation, whereas later, as the idea matured, this planetary-scale self-regulation was recognized as an emergent property of the Earth systemlife and its physical environment taken together.

Rethinking Sex and the Selfish No one can do it—something has to go.

Many scientists in particular also criticised the approach taken in his popular book Gaia, a New Look at Life on Earth for being teleological —a belief that things are purposeful and aimed towards a goal. If they were to take symbiogenesis seriously, they’d have to change their behavior.

The New York Times Magazine. David Luck and John Hall, research geneticists at Rockefeller University, recently made an astounding discovery that I more or less predicted ljnn years ago. In his defense of Gaia, David Abram argues that Gould overlooked the fact that “mechanism”, itself, is a metaphor — albeit an exceedingly common and often unrecognized metaphor — one which leads us lynj consider natural and living systems as though they were machines organized and built from outside rather kargulis as autopoietic or self-organizing phenomena.


Gaia hypothesis – Wikipedia

Lynn Margulis, Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Geosciences, University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and long-time advocate of the Gaia hypothesis, was a keynote speaker. Sagan was then a graduate student in physics at the University of Chicago. Retrieved from ” https: Neel James Augustine Shannon Doolittle argued that nothing in the genome of individual organisms could provide the feedback mechanisms proposed by Lovelock, and therefore the Gaia hypothesis proposed no plausible mechanism and was unscientific.

Human-produced climate change, which is largely a consequence of us burning fossil fuels and so releasing carbon dioxide, is just the latest way life affects the Earth system.

Perhaps I helped him work out his explanations, but I did very little else. Early in my study of genetics, I became aware that other genetic systems with different inheritance patterns exist. By the time of the 2nd Chapman Conference on the Gaia Hypothesis, held at Valencia, Spain, on 23 June[51] the situation had changed significantly. She was promoted to Associate Professor into full Professor inand to University Professor in James Lovelock, next to a statue of Gaia, the Greek godess of the Earth.

The only significant natural source of atmospheric carbon dioxide CO 2 is volcanic activitywhile the only significant removal is through the precipitation of carbonate rocks.
