Spectacular geo-morphological landscapes and regions with special geological features or mining sites, are becoming increasingly recognized as critical areas to protect and conserve for the unique geoscientific aspects they represent and as places to enjoy and learn about the science and history of our planet. More and more national and international stakeholders are engaged in projects related to “Geoheritage”, "Geo-conservation", "Geoparks" and "Geotourism" and are positively influencing the general perception of modern Earth sciences.
Most notably, "Geoparks", have proven to be excellent tools to educate the public about "Earth Sciences". And shown to be areas for recreation and significant sustainable economic development through geotourism.
In order to develop further the understanding of earth sciences in general and to elucidate the importance of earth sciences for Society the Geoheritage, Geoparks and Geotourism (G3) Conservation and Management Series has been launched together with its sister GeoGuides series.

'Projects' developed in partnership with UNESCO, World Heritage and Global Geoparks Networks, IUGS and IGU, as well as with the 'Earth Science Matters' Foundation, are welcome.

The series aims to provide a place for in-depth presentations of developmental and management issues related to Geoheritage and Geotourism as well existing and potential Geoparks. Individually authored monographs as well as edited volumes and conference proceedings are welcome in this series.

This book series is considered to be complementary to the Springer-Journal "Geoheritage".
