Abstract

Four innovations added to the V.I. Vernadsky’s concepts on the biosphere in recent author’s publications were summarized. These innovations are as follows: (a) a new typology of the matter in the biosphere; (b) modernization of the concept of the biogenic migration of chemical elements; (c) a new, fourth, biogeochemical principle; and (d) a more detailed presentation of the concept of a substantial influence of organisms on physical and chemical parameters of the biosphere: namely, the development of a new theory of the multifunctional role of the biota in water self-purification in the hydrosphere.
