We offer a detailed description of our previously published new concept of the evolution of the biosphere as an integral system of its states over time, united by development trends. The structure of the biosphere is considered as a hierarchical fractal system, and the elementary unit of the biosphere is an ecosystem. The fractal structure of the biosphere corresponds to the emergent principle: each lower level is an element of a more complex system and has its own properties. The proposed concept of biosphere evolution is based on the general categories of dialectics: states and interstates, continuity and discreteness, reproducibility and uniqueness. The evolutionary history of the biosphere is a metameric picture of changing states and interstates. The most important feature of the biosphere organization in space–time is a complex system of continua. The development of an integral biospheric system occurs in a time continuum: in the biosphere, the differences between the early and subsequent states are quite significant and obvious. Moreover, these differences are associated with fundamental complications, development, which is, in fact, evolution. The states of the biosphere in certain periods are linked by trends that form an evolutionary system. Continuing states, when the system remains self-identical for a long period, are replaced by new states through interstates. Based on the principle of actualism, the problems of the biosphere’s future and evolutionary trends of the biosphere under anthropogenic impact are considered.

I've found your platform to be an ideal space for sharing knowledge and illustrations within the scientific community. Encyclopedia MDPI has been overwhelmingly positive, primarily because of its user-friendly interface, the wide array of subjects it covers, and the engaging events.

I am really impressed by the final video (produced by Encyclopedia Video team). I was a little bit worried about what the final video would be like, because of the topic, but you made the magic come true again with this video.

I believe research should be brought to the public and that videos are important for getting there. A warm thanks to Encyclopedia for making it happen and to the video crew for doing an excellent job.

I have followed up the Encyclopedia initiative and I think it is a good alternative where researchers can share their works and results with the community.
