Organisms and their environment evolve as a single, self-regulating system.

TLDR
New insights are obtained into environmental and physicochemical factors that participate with selection in a synergic way that put order to the bewildering range of genotypes and morphologies found in living organisms and place evolution in a planetary context where biology, geology, and chemistry can easily be integrated.

More than planetary-scale feedback self-regulation: A Biological-centred approach to the Gaia Hypothesis
12 Recent appraisals of the Gaia theory tend to focus on the claim that planetary life is a cybernetic 13 regulator that would self-regulate Earth’s chemistry composition and climate dynamics,
Self-Organization Against Environmental Stressors, Evolved Elaborately Through Spontaneous Turbulent Dilutions, Led Biological Evolution: Chaos/Complexity and Quantum Coherence-Based Novel Theory
TLDR
The proposed theory suggests that the environmental stressor is a more crucial driver of evolution than the organism or its genes, evolutionary products in themselves, and finds an immediate test application in regenerative medicine and may lead to quantum medicine.
Gaia's Handmaidens: the Orlog Model for Conservation Biology
Abstract:  The Gaia hypothesis, which proposes that Earth's biota and material environment form a self‐regulating system, has been influential in conservation biology, but it has not translated into
Life is determined by its environment
TLDR
Following the course of vertebrate physiology from its unicellular origins instead of its overt phenotypic appearances and functional associations provides a robust, predictive picture for the means by which complex physiology evolved from unice cellular organisms.
Mosaic, self-similarity logic and biological attraction principles
TLDR
The aim of the present paper is to indicate a possible course of this passage of living matter from its origins up to the present day and suggest how today’s complexity has been reached by living organisms.
