It shows how the ubiquity of microorganisms, their high chemical reactivity, and their metabolic diversity make them a significant factor controlling the chemical composition of our planet. Due to this novelty it has received more and more attention in recent years and it has become more than a passing fad as its focus on the interactions between the biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere becomes a fundamental to all of our work.
