What is the nature of life? How did life on Earth begin? How is life connected to the Earth and the Universe? How have humans altered the course of life?

Life is a process, it is an action. To a first approximation, all life must extract energy from its environment to create order. Life is an emergent property, an extension of geological cycles powered by a constant supply of energy from our sun.

Tom Kennedy takes you on a journey from life’s origins, through its evolution and diversification to speculating about the future of life. Along the way, you see that life is connected to the Earth, and nowhere is that more true than today as humans are rapidly degrading the planet. What Does Life Do captures Kennedy’s passion for biology and the importance of science for understanding the natural world.
