520    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)
