Geoheritage Recognized as Outstanding Publication by the Association of Earth Science Editors


Geoheritage: Assessment, Protection, and Management, edited by Emmanuel Reynard and José Brilha received the 2019 Award for Outstanding Publication from the Association of Earth Science Editors. A single book each year receives this award, given for outstanding contributions to geoscience publishing that stimulate new discoveries and the advancement of the field.

“Geoheritage is an emerging discipline in earth sciences, and Geoheritage is the first and only book to discuss sites around the world that are both geologically and historically important,” says Acquisitions Editor Amy Shapiro. Written by an expert team of 46 authors from 14 countries (“from every continent on the planet,” adds Shapiro), Geoheritage covers geoconservation, geotourism, and geoparks, along with the relationship of geoheritage to other subjects, such as landscapes, conservation, and tourism.
