(1) the elliptical domed biosphere is the largest single-span glasshouse in the world(2) He looked at this problem of living processes in the biosphere from that standpoint.(3) So man is now changing the planet, for the better, just as living processes improved the planet, so man by acting on the biosphere improves the planet.(4) And therefore, humanity, which comes into the picture with cognition, depends upon this living part of the planet, the so-called biosphere .(5) The second reason is that it's the mixing place between the biosphere and the atmosphere.(6) Oxygen is one of several vital elements that are constantly consumed and recycled by processes involving the biosphere , the Earth's rocks and volcanoes, and the oceans.(7) Of course, it was snuffed out because Mars is tectonically dead, so the recycling of chemicals that you get on Earth which keeps things going and supplies the surface biosphere would have actually ceased on Mars a lot earlier.(8) The storage of sulfur in the various compartments of Earth and its biosphere , and the many transfers occurring among them, is referred to as the sulfur cycle.(9) Even most of earth is lifeless once you get past the thin film of the biosphere on the surface.(10) He demonstrated, for example, that the atmosphere, the oceans, and most of the area on which we live on the surface of the Earth, is a biosphere .(11) Another major biological feature often considered as organized hierarchically is the pattern of distribution and association of organisms in the biosphere .(12) If we catch it, the potential to expand the biosphere beyond Earth to the rim of the solar system and beyond can be realized.(13) However, forest fires are well-known, important mechanisms for exchanging elements between the biosphere and the atmosphere.(14) The totality of living organisms is the biosphere , although this term is also used to denote the environment inhabited by living organisms.(15) In certain areas, mankind is presently consuming these mineral resources more rapidly than they are being transmitted from the interior of the planet to the biosphere .(16) As a science, ecology describes the interrelationships between organisms and environments - that is, the experience of living together in the biosphere .
