Biogeoscience is an inherently interdisciplinary, rapidly expanding, and increasingly diverse branch of Earth Science. It encourages contributions that focus on the interplay between biological activity and the chemical and physical environment of the Earth surface (atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere), or potentially in the extraterrestrial realm. Organisms play a crucial role in processes that shape, or have shaped, the Earth environment, and biogeoscience research encompasses the full range of phenomena linking biological activity to environmental processes. This includes, but is not limited to:
(1) exploring the diversity of environments and interfaces that are able to sustain life, and the range of lifestyles that organisms have developed to exploit these systems;
(2) seeking analogues of primordial environments on Earth and on extraterrestrial bodies, as well as detecting and deciphering signatures of past life;
(3) identifying and quantifying processes orchestrated by biological systems which exert control on elemental cycling from the atomic to the global scale;
(4) defining and quantifying ecosystem-level functioning and response to environmental variables.
Contributions separately applying or integrating observational, experimental or theoretical lines of inquiry are relevant. Process-oriented studies examining organism-environment interactions and exploring ecosystem functions over all spatial and temporal scales are also integral to this specialty section. Investigations describing novel analytical or molecular biological approaches for examining biological activity, identifying and quantifying processes, and exploring the interface between life and the environment are also germane to the goals of this journal.
