The first book to focus exclusively on the subject, Geodiversity, Second Edition describes the interrelationships between geodiversity and biodiversity, the value of geodiversity to society, as well as current threats to its existence. Illustrated with global case studies throughout, the book examines traditional approaches to protecting geodiversity and the new management agenda now being implemented. The Second Edition of this successful textbook continues to build on the success of the first edition which is still the standard reference for the subject. Fully revised and updated throughout, the Second Edition now includes new material on geoparks, geotourism and implications of climate change for geoconservation. Reviews of previous edition: Murray Gray s new book is the first widely available text to bring together and analyse some of these emerging ideas .The result is a book that should be in the library of every land manager and one that is likely to lead many practicing geoscientists and quaternarists to a new view of the importance of their field for nature conservation and environmental management (Journal of Quaternary Science, Vol.19, No.8 , December 2004) It is strange that it is necessary to justify the importance of geodiversity . Murray Gray does it with brilliance, not only to convince non-believers , but giving inspiration to us that have worked in geoconservation for a long time (ProGEO News, 3 & 4, 2003) "...The author provides a timely review of recent advances in the integration of geodiversity into wider conservation and planning strategies..." . (Journal of Quaternary Science, Vol.19, No.8, December 2004) "...the book is well-written and follows a clear and concise outline." (Environmental Geology, Vol. 48, No. 2, July 2005)
