Scientists are always studying our planet; they say that our planet is made up of lots of different areas or spheres;
Lithosphere- the solid surface of the earth 
Atmosphere- the layer of air above the lithosphere.
Hydrosphere- all the water on the earth, seas, lochs and rivers 
the BiosphereLiving things can be found in all of these places, therefore we call the places where life exists, the Biosphere.
