In The Biosphere, Ian Bradbury takes the biosphere to mean a combination of the sum of living organisms on Earth, together with their physical setting – a kind of global ecosystem approach. His emphasis, however, is strongly on the living organisms. Much of his book concentrates on providing information on basic cell chemistry, genetics and evolution, together with an outline of classification and a discussion of the way in which ecosystems work (primary production, energy flow, mineral cycling and so on). Given the global scale of the title, there is surprisingly little emphasis on ecosystem.

The biosphere-the Earth's thin layer of life-dates from nearly four billion years ago, when the first simple organisms appeared. In Harvesting the Biosphere, Smil gives us as clear and numeric a picture as is possible of how humans have altered the biosphere.
